MEASURES FOR PRESERVING THE ALPINE LIVING ENVIRONMENT

Recharging your batteries, wearing yourself out or sharpening the senses – the nature and living environment in the mountains are a place of recreation for all. So that we can enjoy the beauty of the area for as long as possible and without limits, efforts and rules for keeping the mountains clean are essential.

Although genuine mountain-lovers would actually never leave their waste behind them, environmental pollution is still an important subject. Above all over the tree line, where it is significantly cooler and there is no humus layer, waste only breaks down extremely slowly and is thus a much greater challenge – even waste that is actually organic.

SOME EXAMPLES 
Banana skin 1-2 years Tin can 50-500 years 
Orange peel 1-3 years Plastic bag 60-200 years
Paper tissue 1-5 years Aluminium foil 200-400 years 
Cigarette butt 2-7 years  Baby's nappy 500-800 years
Chewing gum 3-5 years Plastic bottle 100-5,000 years
So that nature lovers can still dispose of their waste without difficulty, there are several waste collection points at various locations in the area, where the waste can be carefully separated at the point of disposal. There is a centrally located ash tray for collecting cigarette butts.
DOG POOP <br> BAGS

DOG POOP
BAGS

It is especially important to pick up dog waste as this can cause sickness in cattle due to the parasite Neospora Caninum and can result in miscarriages and deformities in calves.

Most dog owners strive to pick the waste up, however when it comes to disposing of the poop bags, which nobody likes to carry in their rucksack, there is a tendency to leave them by the side of the path.

Plastic bags take over 60 years to break down in nature.
