Eat Sleep Wild endorses the “Leave No Trace” philosophy.
“Leave No Trace” describes the 7 best practices for respecting the outdoors and protecting our natural spaces. It should go without saying that you should always leave a place the way you found it, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Even in the most remote places I’ve found snack bar wrappers, used wet wipes, even bags full of garbage as if someone thought a rubbish collector would come along and pick it up! Even those with good intentions can sometimes overlook how little actions can have a big impact on the environment.
Please familiarise yourself with these principles. For more information visit lnt.org.

- Plan ahead and prepare.
- Travel and camp on durable surfaces.
- Dispose of waste properly.
- Leave what you find.
