The environmental impact of kayaking is interesting .An environmental impact can be a
simi-formal study , of a certain act , such as building a house , on the environment.
It can take a lot of different forms , historical , social , scientific ,economic , ect. .
Kayaking can be seen in a lot of these contexts .Its related to old eskimo or such peoples
way of life .Its a social and economic activity for a lot of people .And the scientific impact,
that’s not easy to answer .Some materials such as fiberglass are thought to add to pollution
if sunk in a lake .Other composites may contain some harmful chemicals that could be
released into the water . What plastic kayaks may contain , I don’t know , but suspect it
could be harmful as well .
Taking a piss in a lake is not great for it , yet it should not ruin it . Using a boat that may
contain some harmful chemicals or minerals may do more harm .Fiberglass boats have
been around for a while , and I did read a study that found lakes with a good amount of
sunk boats had a good amount of some kind of pollution .John
