Bathroom Etiquette in the Outdoors

As a group, we outdoor enthusiasts have devised a code of etiquette that guides our behavior in the outdoors. Reducing human impact on the environment is at the forefront of this code. While some of the code may be well known or just plain common sense, such as picking up after yourself, there are some concepts or things that people may have a hard time finding information on or may be embarrassed to ask. If you are going to enjoy the outdoors, you owe it to yourself to understand how your actions can impact the environment and also how you can take steps to minimize those impacts. One on Montbell’s Seven Missions is protecting the environment, so we find it especially important to educate others regarding ways we can individually take to limit our impact on the environment.
