Snow on the ground shouldn't stop anybody from getting outside. This week's tips will make your cold-weather camping trip enjoyable and environmentally friendly.

Tip #1: Layer up.

Layers are the easiest way to warm up in winter. When it comes to choosing your outdoor gear, go with an eco-aware brand like  Patagonia . They make  outerwear  of excellent quality, but when your Patagonia pieces finally do wear out, the company  takes them back and recycles them into new fabric. The company is also part of 1% For The Planet and takes on environmental campaigns .

Tip #2: Build a snow shelter.

Tip #3: Recycle fuel canisters.
