Welcome to The Happy Choices!

We are a blog for outdoor loving people. Not for extreme adventurers but for everyday people.
Hikers, Backpackers, Travellers, Sun Bather, Paddlers, Runners…

We like to support you getting outside. Start making excuses and just do it. I know in the beginning you might be overwhelmed by what to pack, what to wear, how to plan…. But no worries we got it all covered. And on top of that we have a lot of low-waste/sustainable hiking tips for you.

Environmental Responsibility

This is the most important ones for me. And it should be the most important for everyone who likes to enjoy nature.

While more and more people enjoy getting outside, the most beautiful and sensitive areas needs to be protected, so they stay beautiful for ever and not getting destroyed.

It is important to educate yourself about Leave No Trace and commit to maintain trails. This means to be respectful to nature and others, stay on trail, pack it in-pack it out (yes even toiletpaper and cigarette butts!) or pack snacks in reusables. Bring your 11th essential to pick up trash while hiking or organize a cleanup on your favorite trail. And follow the established rules.

And it doesnt stop there. Buying plastic free, from sustainable brands, organic, etc will help to keep our planet beautiful and make it healthy again.
