It's December. The Bigfoot Challenge is back. December is sponsored by the wonderful Industrial Revolution. Let's check out the challenges:
1. Minimize campfire impacts! Plan a winter outing and find an alternative to a campfire, such as using a lightweight stove for cooking and a candle lantern for light. Email a short story or photo to be entered into this month's drawing twice!
2. When wrapping your holiday presents this year, consider using newspaper, another eco-friendly wrapping paper, or reusing paper from other presents!
3. Bigfoot says put your money where your heart is! There were 11 billion visits to the outdoors last year; 2 million people learned Leave No Trace skills and ethics. With your year-end gift, we will attaint our 2012 goal of reaching 3 million people. Consider giving a year-end gift to the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics OR do some holiday shopping at the Leave No Trace store!
Thanks again to Industrial Revolution for sponsoring this month's Bigfoot Challenge! And thanks to those of YOU who will take the challenge this month and be entered to win a great prize from Industrial Revolution! Get out there and Leave No Trace!
