    thanks! that’s a great list. I would stress that with little water in the environment, nothing breaks down. So please remind them to carry everything out, even tissues, as they won’t disappear, but blow in the wind, even if buried under the sand!!

    My motto is “leave it cleaner than when you came!!”
