Brighter days are here, summer is at our doorstep, and the rhythm of hiking and camping is quickening. Which makes it the perfect time to talk about the “Leave No Trace” movement and the right habits you can practise and the mistakes to avoid on your next adventure.
In the face of the climate crisis, how can we learn to calm down and draw from our resilience and creativity? Here are a few suggestions from Isabelle Béliveau, laureate of the 2021 Aiming for Action contest, taken from the workshops and trainings of Éco-motion, the organization she co-founded.
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to spend 3 days on a boat in the open sea. My eyes then opened to the beauty, the immensity and the key role the ocean plays in sustaining life on our planet. And I saw what we have allowed to float through it for too long, our waste.

It’s that time of year, summer is winding down and the kids are heading back to school. Over the last few years I’ve learned to press the pause button before I head out to the store for school supplies, and really consider the things that I am buying. What better time to start a new routine and embrace greener habits than the start of a fresh school-year?!
As Rodolphe Christain mentions in Le manuel de l’antitourisme: “It is better to choose the path over the destination and to disappear rather than appear everywhere”. This is where exploring by bike fits in and where bikepacking, an emerging sub-category of bike tourism, responds to a new reality: to satisfy the need for adventure from a minimalist perspective, both in terms of equipment and carbon footprint.
The term “gleaning” may not ring any bells at first. This relatively unknown agricultural practice is quite simple: harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables from the field that would have otherwise gone to waste! Read on, we’ll explain everything about this revolutionary practice!
Does any action we take, no matter how small, as long as it respects the environment, makes us an eco-responsible person? Let’s take a closer look at that!
