In honor of National Random Act of Kindness Day on the 17th, we’re opting outside! We want to show kindness on the trails and campsites we love most. This could be to other hikers, or the trails themselves. Here at Piggyback Rider we believe in taking care of the trails for generations to come.
Clean Up The Trail
The best way to clean up a trail, is to make a day hike out if it. Grab the family and friends, some trash bags and your Piggyback Rider and start the clean up. The Piggyback Rider will come in handy if you have younger kids with you that might get tired towards the end of the day. It also keeps your hands free, so you’ll be able to pick up trash or hold the trash bag.
If you are planning on staying at a campsite overnight, try to repackage and ration food to keep waste on the trail to a minimum. You’ll want to avoid leftovers at all cost. A great rule of thumb to remember is good campsites are found, not made. Avoid expanding into different areas, as this could damage habitats and vegetation.
Of course, one of the best acts of kindness you can do is something for another person. If it’s the busy season, consider packing extra water in a bag to hand out to other hikers you see. If you plan on packing snacks, pack extra and offer it to other families on the trail. Other kind acts could include offering to to pack up someone else’s trash. Or even letting someone test ride the Piggyback Rider. All acts of kindness are welcome!
Random acts of kindness can really spread the love this month, and especially on the 17th. We love to opt outside with our Piggyback Rider to enjoy hands free parenting. Maybe hands free kindness is the next trend! Get your own Piggyback Rider, or add a new accessory. Visit our website to see a full list of products.
