Living an eco-friendly lifestyle is not just a trend, it's a conscious choice to protect the environment and preserve our planet for future generations. One area where we can make a significant impact is by choosing sustainable alternatives for our everyday activities, such as picnicking. With beautiful hills and lakes to have a pitstop and enjoy nature, it's the perfect time to plan a delicious picnic and incorporate eco-friendly practices into our outdoor activities. Here are some tips and recommendations for an eco-friendly picnic experience.
Choose sustainable picnic utensils
One of the most significant sources of waste during a picnic or bbq is disposable utensils, plates, and cups. We all know that choosing recyclable or reusable, sustainable picnic utensils made from eco-friendly materials such as bamboo or stainless steel will reduce our environmental impact.

Use Eco-Friendly Picnic Baskets and Bags
Tote bags, and recycling bags reduce plastic waste. Consider RPET bags, which are made from recycled plastic bottles. Choosing an eco-friendly picnic basket to reduce your environmental impact.
Zero Food Waste Approach
When planning a picnic, choose foods that are local and in-season. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also supports local farmers and ensures that you're getting the freshest, most flavorful foods. Choose foods that are easy to transport, such as sandwiches, salads, and fruits. Avoid pre-packaged and processed foods. Consider using reusable containers and especially those that could keep the items fresh. Think of Lexngo's new range of fresh food packaging that keeps your food fresh outdoors.
Leave No Trace
Having a bag full of garbage is not an ideal eco-living. In Asia, we have easy access to plastic bags and beverages packed in plastic bottles. We could sometimes overuse them for our convenience. After your picnic or outdoor activities, avoid leaving any trash and non-biodegradable materials like bottles, utensils, or containers.
Let us leave no trace and do our part to protect the environment and ensure that the natural beauty of the area is preserved for future generations.
