Nudist Travel in an Environmentally Sound Manner

The Official AANR Blog - Jue, 23/05/2019 - 12:19

One of the most eco-friendly types of vacations is a Nakation℠ vacation —  a clothing optional getaway. Remember, luggage kills fuel economy, which is one reason why checking it on the airplane costs you. You won’t need more than a carry-on for a Nakation vacation out of state (and you won’t need a vacation wardrobe). You will travel light on road trips too. Did you know an extra 100 pounds in your vehicle reduces your car’s fuel economy by 2%? Those taking a Nakation vacation are able to pack less and travel more.

While on the topic of clothing, did you know polyester, a plastic, is found in most every wardrobe in t-shirts, dresses, jeans, suits, sweat wicking athletic wear, and even undergarments. Why not, like naturists, give a little help to Mother Earth by paring down your closet? The number of garments the world consumes is a growing ecological issue in energy necessary to produce; and once out of fashion, the inability of polyester fiber clothing to biodegrade, which puts an added strain on the environment

And AANR-affiliated lodging facilities are extremely affordable.  With 180 clubs, campgrounds and resorts to choose from in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and internationally, there’s bound to be one right for, and near to, you.

Despite all of the damage caused to the environment by man, most of it is reversible. As conscientious custodians we can restore habitats and return species to them; clean rivers; renovate buildings; replenish the topsoil and replant forests. Many nudists are closely connected to and get eagerly involved in the preservation of our nation’s beaches, parks and other natural resources, and they are also committed to reducing their personal impact on the Earth’s resources…One reason nudists are also called naturists.

NUDISTS’ RIGHTS LEGAL ADVOCATE RETURNS TO LEAD AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR NUDE RECREATION

The Official AANR Blog - Mar, 05/03/2019 - 10:07

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (March 4, 2019) – The American Association for Nude Recreation is pleased to announce that Erich Schuttauf, JD has accepted the position of Executive Director. Having served in many capacities for the organization founded in 1931, Schuttauf has walked the halls of the Tallahassee legislature and halls of Congress promoting the positive economic impact of nude recreation on the U.S. tourism economy, during his tenure he has also visited many state law makers advocating on behalf of nudist rights in advance of legislative sessions on bills, and worked with federal agencies such as National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in support of nudity on appropriate public lands.

A member of AANR since 1991 (when AANR was still known as the American Sunbathing Association/ASA), he is also a longtime spokesperson on wholesome family-style nude recreation, having appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews, O’Reilly Factor, CNBC, ABC’s Good Morning America and been interviewed by such notable publications as the New York Times, Orlando Sentinel, Details Magazine, among many others. “I see my role as AANR’s Executive Director as one to lead our members as the voice of advocacy on behalf of individuals and families to enjoy outdoor pursuits in the way God made them, whether it be at member Clubs or their own backyard.

I’m eager to build on decades of AANR’s core values of wholesome nude recreation where appropriate,” notes Schuttauf. “I’m also committed to growing the diversity of our membership. Our largest growing demographic is African-American. The demographic most loyal: Latin. Those most willing to experience nude recreation: Millennial’s. I want all – regardless of age or ethnicity — to feel welcome as AANR members and members of our affiliated clubs, resorts and campgrounds.” Schuttauf is a graduate of Purdue University, IN and earned his law degree from Duke University, NC.

He and his wife of 30 years have raised four children, all of whom enjoy clothes-free recreation as well as successful careers in healthcare, tourism and the U.S. Army. Active in his community of Kissimmee at his Lutheran church, Schuttauf is also a member of the Florida Bar, Orange and Osceola County Bars, and donates his time and expertise to the Juvenile Guardian Ad Litem and the Osceola County Council on Aging.
