Banana peels

Tossing food waste (like banana or orange peels) in nature is often detrimental to the environment and should be disposed of properly. Tossing food waste onto the ground, even if it’s “biodegradable” can be really bad for the environment and defies Leave No Trace practices. Even food that breaks down quickly doesn’t usually break down fast enough for a critter to get to and can attract wildlife to areas they aren’t accustomed to (or feed them things they’re not supposed to have).
