I can't recall ever seeing orange trash bags. I think it would make
collecting trash feel jsut like Trick or Treating. Ok, maybe not that
fun, but it does feel good to clean up Mother Nature . Great idea
though!!. I have just been stealing the ones my wife buys for around
the house. I will look for them on my next WallyWorld trip.
Has anyone experience with light weight shovels, bow saws, and/or
hatchets. We have to do a conservation/trail improvement project on
our 50 miles hike to earn the badge. This is not something a hiker
would normally carry, but we will have to tote it.

more purposes than just trash hauling. In a pinch, it can be a
makeshift poncho or rainfly. It can protect gear from getting wet.
You can use it to collect water, even making a solar still if need
be. The bright orange ones can also be used to signal for help!

adds no weight, takes very little space, and helps resolve a number
of little crises.
