Green Your Picnic: Leave No Trace

Picnic blanket Summer's here! To celebrate the long, hot days, rally your friends and pack a picnic. This week's tips will help you keep it green.

Tip # 3: Keep it clean.

What with chip bags, soda cans, and paper napkins, picnics can create a huge mess. We challenge you to leave zero waste. It's easy: Bring refillable water bottles, cloth napkins, reusable or biodegradable cutlery and plates, and food in Tupperware containers as opposed to plastic bags. After the party, check around your picnic area and pick up scraps, then bring them home to your compost pile.

Tell us: What do you do to minimize waste?
