I have to disagree that it is common sense. From what I have seen, and cleaned up, the vast majority of people do not have a clue. This education is clearly needed.
A couple of weeks ago I cleaned up the most disgusting campsite I have ever seen. The woman had used the area in a circle around the campsite (a lot of t.p. with no feces = female) but feces too - none of it was buried. The man had used the creek. Several rocks were covered with feces and the t.p. along with a pair of dirty boxer shorts were slowly circling around the eddy in this small creek that I often sit by. They both had used a lot of toilet paper and they were not at all healthy.
I grabbed a trash bag as well as a doggy doo bag to use as a glove but I had no way to clean off the rocks without losing my lunch (which was already threatening - it is probably a good thing that I am used to picking up dog doo but his was really, really gross) I also picked up a half dozen apples as well as dozens of citrus wedges and egg shells. I was so upset that I almost went home. I did go camp somewhere else.
I don't believe that anyone like this can be "educated". I have encountered far too many "adults" who take umbrage at being told they are doing something wrong - I think it is an ego thing.
