I recently began hiking regularly, and something I can't help but notice every time I hike is litter left behind on the trail - corners of a granola bar wrapper, water bottles, hair ties... Growing up I was taught to always leave a place better than I found it, so I'm curious how you all go about picking up after others?

So far I've just been barehand grabbing litter and tossing it in a spare plastic grocery bag I keep on-hand, but I'm looking to improve my methods/equipment if there's a better way. Anyone go as far as bringing a trash picker on the trail, maybe using a stuff sack as a receptacle? Teach us your ways!
