Considering how much Winton Woods (even Idlewild has thinned out considerably more than it was 8 years ago) has changed in the 30+ years it's been in the ground and the non-biodegradable petroleum based equipment we use, I don't necessarily consider disc golf to be "green". Even the pictures on this site make it look much more wooded than it is today. It's because of the tree hits and hundreds of golfers daily though, not the disc fragments laying on the ground.

Bingo. I know Mt. Airy has been dealing with erosion issues for years and, I believe, almost had to close the course at one point.

Yea I may have been a bit ambitious saying it was one of the most green. But I still think it pretty much is, the sport is still in the early stages of developing. Little kinks like polluting and too much traffic on courses will be worked out as the sport grows. Pay to Play IMO improves the sports image and wildlife areas that it uses. We have identified that disc shavings is pretty insignificant, tree wear is inevitable but should decrease with more courses being added. For courses like Idlewild and other oldies those places are considered the birthplace of a lot of DGers career, its kinda cool to see the "history" of Disc Golf in a place like that.

Ill end by saying, we can always plant more trees, we cant always replace a disc.

Unless you're throwing Flywood, cut from a sustainable source, DG will never be truly "green."

Agreed about the leaders, but I don't necessarliy think its the foreign leaders that are at fault. The world bank provides predatory loans to third world countries under the guise of improving their infrastructure. To pay these loans back the country has to sell off the only thing it has - their resources. Their land, their water, their mineral rights, etc.
Unfortunately this is a case of the rich vs. the poor, not people vs. the earth.

We haven't spoken much since. Littering is as deplorable as theft to me.
hahahaha! He must have hated you! That would be so embarrassing.

But I gotta give you props. Dangerous to do that on the highway but..... Littering is terrible. I'm guilty occasionally but I hold onto my trash when I am done with it until there is a garbage can. It's not hard really.

Anyways, stop giving this guy trash. He doesn't deserve it..
