Waste-Free Picnics
Make your picnic "waste free"

PicnickingPicnicking is a great way to relax outdoors with family and friends. You can keep your picnic friendly to the environment as well. A "waste-free picnic" means nothing from your outing ends up in a landfill and all leftover materials are reused, recycled or composted. Check out these tips for creating your own waste-free picnic.

Leave no trace

  • Look around your picnic area and pick up all personal items and trash.
  • Recycle your cans and bottles.
  • Bring enough bags to efficiently dispose of your trash.
  • Do not dispose of ice in piles on the grass or planting beds. Spread it out or, better, let it melt first.
  • Leave your picnic area as clean as it was when you arrived
