WAZ008: Bandana - Foraging Field Reference
Wazoo Survival Gear

Foraging is an art that's all but lost in today's modern society but can make a huge difference in your life. It is often argued that the caloric intake necessary to sustain a human being over a long period of time cannot be wholly remedied by plant foraging alone. It is also well-known that food is low on the priority of needs in most survival situations. However, foraging for medicine, vitamins, and calories can provide real life-saving benefits beyond sustenance. 

Additional to foraging’s direct biological benefits, it’s psychological importance cannot be understated, especially in an emergency. A Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) is often derived by a feeling that one has hope and often times hope can be rooted in a feeling that someone still retains power over their own situation. A foraging tool like this one is meant to give a person power over their situation, leading to purpose and the ability to self-aid and self-rescue.

There is not enough space on a bandana to fully teach how to properly identify plants. Likewise, there's not enough space to teach all the nuances of processing and accessing the resources of each plant. This bandana acts as a learning primer, field aid, and emergency reference. As you learn to identify plants and which of their parts to use this bandana will be your memory jog while in the field.

For neophytes, this bandana serves as a fun stepping-stone educational tool. For more experienced foragers, the product will encourage impromptu foraging, help share the passion of foraging with others, demonstrate their alignment with the foraging lifestyle, and help promote top-of-mind awareness to continue education in the field.

Another aspect to consider is that this foraging tool can help a person in an emergency by preventing a potential foraging misstep. Under stress, certain brain functions are affected negatively. This can lead to memory and judgment impairment. Even experts can make mistakes under stress that beginners would never make under normal conditions.

The world does not need more trash. Wazoo tried to assure that this product serves a need. They are not creating a piece of gear that takes the place of an existing one, but rather they are filling a void that many do not realize exists.
