It is the perfect time to go on a picnic. The grass is green, the weather is nice, and the sun is shining. Check out our list of Picnic Essentials, where we share some of our favorite eco-friendly products making it a green picnic!
Cooler/Tote: Instead of carrying your food in a throw-away plastic or paper bag, we recommend the Vera Bradley So Cool Picnic Tote which is a reusable tote featuring slip pockets to house ice packs, a double zip closure for easy access, and removable top handle. The best part is, it permits up to three hours of cool temperature’s!
Ice Packs: In order to keep your premade from spoiling, reusable ice packs are a great idea. We recommend Kids Konserve Non-Toxic Ice Pak + Sweat Free Cover because they are waste free/sweat free, nontoxic, BPA-free, Phthalate free, and reusable!
Hand Sanitizer: For a quick hand cleaning, portable antibacterial hand sanitizer is a great thing to have! We recommend On-The-Go Jelly Wrapped Purell
Glass Tupperware: Reusable, BPA-free containers are a must! We recommend Martha Stewart’s Collection Glass Food Storage Containers because they have locking clips to make them easy to open and seal, which also prevent leakage!
Reusable Water Bottle: For $22.99, we recommend a Lifefactory Glass Bottle because they are chemical-free, BPA-free, Phthalate Free, and FDA approved. Because it’s a glass bottle, there is no chemical leaching or metallic taste!
Reusable Utensils: Having utensils that are compact and reusable are essential for an eco-friendly picnic. We recommend Bambu Sporks because they are made from sustainable bamboo, compact, and reusable! Plus, they are super cute and kid friendly!
Sunscreen: Protecting your skin from the sun’s rays is crucial during the summer months. It’s important to bring along sunscreen to have UVA/UVB protection and to prevent skin damage. We recommend Aveeno SPF 55 because it’s oil-free and waterproof!
