Five fecal bag collection points were installed in a nature park in the Canadian province of British Columbia earlier this week. Visitors cause a lot of inconvenience by relieving themselves there. Special stool bags should offer a solution.
Visitors to the nature park near the town of Squamish have recently encountered more and more feces near rocks and off hiking trails. This was reason enough for park managers at the Squamish Access Society (SAS) to install poo bag collection points at popular climbing sites.
Four more collection points are scheduled to be added in the near future.
Unlike dog poop bags, the bags contain a special type of gel. This breaks up the feces. The gel should also resist unpleasant odor.
“We tested this by leaving a filled poo bag in the car on a hot day. You couldn’t smell anything at the end of the day,” Ben Webster, president of SAS, said earlier this week. Local media. The package containing the stool bag also contained toilet paper and hand gel, SAS wrote Facebook.
Poo bag collection points are equipped with pictures to show visitors how to use the bags. “It’s durable and doesn’t leak, so you can take it out of the garden and throw it away somewhere else,” Webster concludes.
