Biodegradable Trail Marking Tape Ribbon in Orange
Biodegradable Trail Marking Tape
Biodegradable trail marking tape - bright orange ribbon spooled on a cardboard reel. Getting lost is never fun. It is inconvenient at best, and dangerous at worst. To counter this, we have seen many trails marked with bright orange plastic flagging type or survey tape - tied to bushes. While this is handy and effective, plastic introduced into the environment is a bad idea.
This product is special biodegradable orange trail marking tape. Tie this bright orange ribbon to trees, bushes and objects and is easy to see and waves in the wind to attract attention. But, unlike plastic tape - this one is biodegradable. It is made of non-woven cellulosic material derived from wood pulp. Use biodegradable ribbon to seasonally mark your campsite or trails, if you forget to remove it, it completely biodegrades.
Easy to tear and tie by hand - soft to the touch, yet bright and highly visible orange color.
It is very light and a light breeze will cause it to flutter and fly like a flag, making it even more visibile.
This trail marking tape is completely non-toxic to humans, animals and the environment. It is readily decomposed by bacterial action alone or in conjunction with ultraviolet rays, moisture and abrasion caused by wind. Complete degradation of this biodegradable ribbon will occur outdoors in six to twenty-four months depending on the climate and environmental conditions.
Use the bright orange biodegradable tape to mark favorite hiking trails, fishing spots, campsites, snowmobile trails, cross country ski routes, snow shoe trails, mountain bike shortcuts, trails through thick brush and more. It is great for creating 'high visibility" breadcrumbs for backtracking should you go bushwhacking off trail. Also good for snowmobile trails, mountain bike, or Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) trail marking. We've even used it as a driveway marker at the cabin.
Great for keeping kids out of certain areas (poison ivy, poison oak or thorny bushes). Mark tent ropes and lines to reduce the tripping hazard. Some campers tie a length between tent poles or trees to play games - limbo anyone? How low can you go?
Other uses include - marking cross country routes, trail running competitions, mountain bike races, anywhere you want to minimize the "after event" environmental impact outdoors. It makes a good finish line for running races. Or use as the ribbon for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 'green' projects like trail building.
Longer sections can be stretched across a trail as a barrier should unsafe trail conditions exist ahead. You can even use a pen or pencil to write warning messages on it to inform other hikers.
Using this tape protects cattle, wild goats, deer and other grazing animals from injesting plastic marking tape. This product is essentially cellulose and will not poison animals, it will simply digest like any plant material.

||Worked well on Summer trail
|I like to hike into Desolation Wilderness via a trail around Pyramid Peak in the Sierras. The trailhead I use is next to a busy road but difficult to find due to overgrowth. I marked it with this tape two years ago. It held up well for the Summer letting me find the trailhead. Then after a Winter of rain, snow, wind, etc. it was gone. Works as advertised and better for the environment than plastic ribbon.|
