Some simple ways to improve the environment up at the cottage:
– Using a sailboat instead of a gas powered boat
– Not letting waste or cleaning products to get into the lake
– Swapping riding ATV’s for people powered alternatives like mountain bikes
– Make sure empty beer bottles don’t get broken (and bringing them back to the store means getting money for more beer!)
