A snack-packed picnic is a staple of the British summer, but packaging the food safely usually involves plastic. Here’s our guide to the latest paper products for your outdoor food and drink.
OK, so you may not be jetting off this summer without a series of expensive tests and four-hour airport queues when you get back. But there’s nothing to stop you from gathering the family, making a few sandwiches, and heading to your favourite picnic spot for some outdoor fun.
But while making the food isn’t too much of a problem, protecting it and keeping it cool in environmentally friendly packaging is. Having a plastic-free picnic is a tough task, especially when the weather in the UK can go from tropical to torrential in just a few minutes.
So to help you have an eco-friendly picnic, we’ve created a guide to outdoor eating using paper rather than plastic.
