Follow proper Leave No Trace(TM) principles by using the GSI Cathole sanitation trowel on your backpacking trips. Trowel is made from repurposed GSI polycarbonate food and beverage products that were pulled from the shelves over growing concerns about the chemical BPA. Serrated edges make for easy digging in hard soil. Leave No Trace(TM) guidelines are molded into the back of the trowel so you'll always remember to tread lightly. 1% of sales support Leave No Trace(TM).

Despite the dry or frozen soil, the GSI Cathole Trowel ensures that you can deposit your own brand of fertilizer into the Earth's natural garden. Digging a personal latrine is more than a cosmetic camping practice because, when buried, your waste is quickly decomposed and absorbed as nutrients instead of running into the local watershed.

A product that truly makes a green statement, GSI Outdoors' Cathole Trowel is crafted with re-purposed Lexan, a BPA-containing plastic material that was formerly used for drinking vessels. With a great deal of the material left, the decision was made to reuse this unusable material for a serrated, sure-grip sanitation shovel with the Leave No Trace Usage Guidelines molded into the back.
