Sun/Snow Glasses

As humans, our eyes are one of our most valuable senses, so protecting them is essential.

Here are two ways to make sun/snow glasses in the wilderness

Grass skirts are fairly easy to make and are a good way to protect you in tropical climates. 

All you have to do is find some long lengths of grass or banana leaves. Make cordage out of grass and hang the leaves off it.

When traveling outdoors, it is advisable to wear shoes to protect yourself from stepping onto something that could injure you.
