Summer is on in full force, and there are many ways for people to get out and enjoy the weather. What can a family or organization do to make sure that they are protecting the environment while they are having fun? In an effort to make this easier, online retailer of eco-friendly and biodegradable products, WholeEarthPackaging.com, is offering up a few tips and tricks to help make the most of this season of sun and fun.
WholeEarthPackaging.com’s tips for an eco-friendly picnic:
Fill a few hours on a summer afternoon or plan an all day outdoor adventure by having a green picnic. An ideal green picnic combines healthy foods, a great location, and environmentally-friendly paper products and picnic supplies. Consumers should make sure that eco-friendly paper products are Green Seal certified, as this takes the guesswork out of the green evaluation process for the purchaser. The eco-friendly products at WholeEarthPackaging.com comply with these standards.
Before setting out on a green picnic with eco-friendly paper products, families and organizations should choose reusable picnic baskets such as cloth grocery bags or even an old fashioned picnic basket. Choose organic food from farmers markets—this is better for both the earth and the environment. Also try to include whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and other similar food items that don’t require any additional packaging in order to stay fresh.
Environmentally conscious picnic-goers should choose recycled or recyclable picnic products. Biodegradable dishes, corn cutlery, cloth napkins, and Green Seal certified paper products are ideal for green picnics. Even though the picnic products are eco-friendly, picnic-goers should still remember to leave the site cleaner than it was found. Garbage—no matter how biodegradable—is not a natural part of any picnic site.
The right biodegradable eatery can make any picnic Mother Nature’s dream.
