This Earth Day, Primus wanted to celebrate Leave No Trace's Traveling Trainers.
Have you ever wanted to travel to all 50 states in your lifetime? What about knocking out 43 states in one year? That’s what The Subaru/Traveling Trainers of Leave No Trace accomplished in 2017.
Primus is a proud sustainability partner and sponsor of Leave No Trace Center For Outdoor Ethics. Leave No Trace strives to educate outdoor enthusiasts about how they impact the environment, and employ techniques to be more responsible when they hike, camp, fish or venture into mother nature's backyard.
The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers host organized groups and the general program to teach them how to reduce impact on our environment. The Traveling Trainers camp more than 250 nights a year. These trainers live out of their Subarus and cook meals on the super durable Primus Firehole and Eta Lite+ stoves. Last year, they visited 43 states and reached 15.4 million Americans.
During one of these programs, The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers hosted a demonstration with a group of boy scouts to show how a campfire lit directly on top of the soil can kill nutrients that allow plants to grow. This is just one example of the work that they do while living on the road.
On the Road
Life on the road forces the Traveling Trainers to be strategic about what they pack. Durability and weight matter on many of their excursions. Matt Schneider and Jessie Johnson of the Traveling Trainers told us, “For fast and light backcountry cooking, Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers love our Primus Lite stove. In fact, last year they cooked over 830 meals on them! Plus, they never make you smell like campfire smoke!”
We’re happy that Primus can help make The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers’ lives just a bit easier so they can focus on what really matters: conserving our outdoor spaces through education.
