Tourist, are you friend or foe?

When going on a hike, picnic, or just for a walk in the woods, most people are not going to harm nature. However, more often than not, we cause irreparable damage without realizing it or not realizing it. There is, of course, a certain group of the population for whom the principle “after me, even a flood” is a personal conviction. Most likely, they do not read this article.

The average tourist makes a fire when he comes to the forest. Careless handling of fire - and now vegetation, animals, insects and so on are dying. We trample the grass, pick flowers that we don't even bring home, make notches in the trees, drive our cars as deep as possible into the forest, leaving behind ruts that are destined to drag on in a few years. And the most important thing is that we do not clean up after ourselves in the forest. After the picnic, the meadow is strewn with cigarette butts, bags and bottles. Does this sound familiar?

Waste classification

Any garbage in the forest is dangerous for its toxicity, and has an individual decomposition period. There are 2 main groups:

The state is allowed to throw garbage only into special bins, garbage cans and containers. Everything that is thrown out of their boundaries is punished with administrative penalties. The administrative code states that it is forbidden to leave garbage on the road (road, rail) and in forest zones.

Disposal methods

Problems with the law and conscience can be avoided with proper waste disposal. Each type of waste has different ways.

  • Paper, cardboard, bio-packaging. This type of garbage is best burned at the stake. After the disposal is completed, cover the fire place with earth, so the ash will not scatter around the area, and the surface of the earth will recover faster.
  • Food waste. It is an organic waste that decays for a short time. To destroy it under the bush, remove the sod, dig a hole, put waste there, bury it and return the sod under the bush. Then pour plenty of water over it. Food that decays after 2-3 weeks will become a plant feed. The main thing is to separate the waste from plastic and bags before burying.
  • Metal waste. Tin cans are made of thin metal, so they oxidize in a short time, mainly on contact with water. In order for the jar to decompose faster, the anti-corrosion coating is removed from it and dipped into the fire. After processing, the jar needs to be reduced and dripped like food waste. Under the influence of the atmosphere, it quickly oxidizes, and will not harm nature.
  • Plastic. This type of waste will harm nature in any case. It is not recommended to take it when going outdoors, the contents can be transferred to glass or iron containers, they will be easier to dispose of. Doing with plastic, like with paper, is impossible, when it comes into contact with fire, it releases toxic gas, which will lead to poisoning. Opinions differ about its toxicity, but there will definitely not be any benefit from it.
  • Glass. It is impossible to burn it, but it deforms perfectly in fire. After firing, the glass is dipped in water for better fragility, dried and crumbled to the state of sand. It is not worth breaking glass without processing with fire, this can injure a person or an animal. You do not need to take objects from such material with you to nature.

Systemic problems with garbage in the forest give rise to many methods of dealing with it:

  • In every city there are waste processing plants that are able to recycle any waste. In addition to the fact that factories save the environment from pollution, they "give" a second life to some materials.
  • Municipal institutions employ people who clean up garbage on city streets and in woodlands. These people save the earth from the effects of decomposition of organic and inorganic waste.
  • High fines prescribed by regulations are established.
  • Various garbage collection campaigns are held, where volunteers clean forests, streets, roads.

Global Harm

If a tourist thinks that he does not harm the environment globally, he is mistaken. To everyone's joy, tourists do not carry industrial chemicals with them on a hike. But global harm to the planet can be caused by things that are not even poison. Kerosene or gasoline for primus, brake fluid and substances for degreasing, oil is very different - pour it on the ground or pour it into the river, and now you have already caused the death of hundreds of animals and plants.

At present, people, in particular Russians, do not have a very large selection of overseas recreation. Of course, in your own country you can find many interesting places where you can go, but often, due to the high cost, these places are not very accessible for people with low incomes. Where can you spend an inexpensive vacation if you still want to get out of your country?


Belarus can be considered as a country where you can have an inexpensive vacation, for several reasons at once. The road to the place of rest will be quite cheap. There is no need to obtain a visa, there is no language barrier. Very often people go to this country to get quality treatment and inexpensive rest.

Belarus is famous for its delicious and hearty national cuisine. And even with a very modest budget, no one will go hungry. Agriculture is very developed in the country, so the main foodstuffs are locally produced, and accordingly, they are cheap.

How to get there

There are many options, all of which can be budgetary. Choose according to your taste - plane, train, transport (car or bus).

Where to rest

Belarus is famous for its health resorts and sanatoriums, there are a lot of them throughout the country. The Belarusian sanatoriums perfectly combine excellent service, excellent medical care, good living conditions, comfort for families with children, high-tech medical equipment.

The nature of the country is amazingly beautiful, it is famous for its forests and lakes. One of the main attractions of Belarus is Belovezhskaya Pushcha - this is the largest forest in Europe. Its protected forests are home to over 250 species of birds and animals. The reserve is very popular with tourists; it houses the Estate of Father Frost, where the wizard receives guests all year round.

An open-air archaeological museum is open on the territory. You can visit the reserve as part of tourist groups. In the administrative center of the park - the village of Kamenyuki, there is a wonderful hotel complex, guest houses, in the vicinity there are many agro-estates. Many tourists prefer to stay in the city of Brest (60 km from the park) or its environs, where there is also something to see, and where you can relax inexpensively. It is also the warmest and southernmost of the major cities in Belarus.
