Bay Area Naturists recognize that the human species must live in harmony with Planet Earth. We actively reduce the consumption of raw materials and the accumulation of unnecessary solid waste, in our daily lives and when we gather in groups. To this end, we offer signs with which a party host may designate appropriate containers for separating trash from recyclable materials.
