Garbage Caving… Perkele!

*Every* cave that I go to in Finland seems to have at least one beer can. Lets clean them up!

Join me in bringing the junk out. I started out by taking stuff out of the Luolavuoren luola or the Cave Mountain Cave in Turku, as we were visiting it on a caving course.

It isn't that complicated. Bring a small bag on every trip to a cave, and bring out the trash you see.

Besides the ugly garbage, I was inspired in part to do this by the example set by the Swedish Plogga effort which was talked about at the Banff mountain film festival that I visited in Stockholm last week. Why not clean up garbage and other broken things when you see them? It is up to all of us.
