SUSTAINABLE PICNIC

Here is some environmentally friendly advice for preparing a zero-waste basket for a 100% sustainable picnic! 

Sustainable picnic

Summer is the season for picnics, day trips and holidays in the mountains or by the sea and nothing beats a picnic when it comes to fully enjoying nature barefoot on the grass.

All you need is a nice sunny day and a slightly adventurous spirit to set off in search of a little patch of green. So here is some environmentally friendly advice for preparing a zero-waste basket for a 100% sustainable picnic!

Zero-km food

You do not have to go far to discover the unexpected beauty offered by nature. Just get on your bike to rediscover the wonder of the surrounding countryside, a shady forest or city park. Bring a blanket and a basket with you and start your zero-emission picnic!

A menu that is no-waste...

The ideal menu for an outdoor lunch consists of simple, practical and appetizing recipes designed to be consumed cold, even without cutlery. Leftovers are a perfect ingredient that can be tastily reinvented for an on-the-go meal sitting on the grass.

...and plastic-free

Juices and drinks can also be prepared at home to avoid using plastic packaging. Choosing thermos flasks or glass bottles keeps your drinks fresh for longer!

Eco-friendly tableware

Food can be easily transported in reusable glass jars, fitted with an airtight lid. If necessary, bring dishes, cutlery and glasses with you, but ensure that they are biodegradable. There are light, portable tableware sets made with 100% eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, so you can forget about plastic dishes!

When you return home, remember to take your waste with you and not to leave anything behind.

Because to experience nature, we must firstly take care of it!
