"Leave No Trace" is what you are looking for, I think. Google that to get full info.

I remember the rule from when I was in the Boy Scouts in the mid-80s. I
don't remember what we called it (I'm pretty sure it wasn't "The Boy Scout
Rule,") but I do remember it coming up every time we were packing up.
We were also a troop on a military base where some of our fathers had all
kinds of different experience. So, I wasn't always sure which ideas were
purely Boy Scout ideas, aside from what was in the book. We got exposed to
all kinds of stuff, but always in a really safe way.
But I do remember "leave the camp grounds cleaner than you found them" or
something very close to that exact wording being promoted as a sort of a
motto. It was 25 years ago give or take so some of the details are fuzzy.
