SOME SIMPLE STEPS TO FOLLOW
To avoid these aesthetic and sanitary issues, here are some steps to follow. First of all, let's keep in mind that the easiest solution for us will certainly be the toughest for the earth.
We recommend that you always keep at least 50 metres from rivers when nature calls.
Ideally you need to dig a "cat hole" (with your foot, a stone or a small retractable shovel). There is no point in digging deep: the most effective enzymes for decomposing excrement are found in the top 25 cm of soil.
THE PAPER ISSUE: be careful not to burn it! This was the advice that used to be given, but it is now banned because of the rise in forest fires. And, of course, remember to use eco-friendly toilet paper (or paper for septic tanks which will decompose more quickly).
Bear in mind that mixing everything together will accelerate the decomposition process. And because it's best to teach children the habit as early as possible, finding a suitable stick can become a game.
Do not wash your hands in a river. Instead, use some hydro-alcoholic gel.
