Cook outside on an open fire, fish and cook the catch, was dishes at the camp site using their water and electricity. There are hundreds of ways to keep it green.
Take Home with You
Instead of purchasing special items for the trip, that you may not use again, try using what you already have. Instead of purchasing a grill set use the outdoor fire pits offered at camp sites. Rather than buy special cookware or other items, bring some from home.
