4 tips for an eco-friendly picnic and 1 recipe you’ll love


What is your favorite thing about summer? The beach, the mountains, spending hours and hours doing nothing on vacation? We have it clear… if there is something that in summer we can’t resist are the picnics.

What’s more summery than going out to eat with friends and a picnic blanket? Whether it’s at the beach, at your local pool or in the mountains, this is one of those plans that you can do easily and on a budget this summer.

So take note: here are 4 tips to make your picnic a totally responsible plan ????

Choose places where you can go by bike

Why not start the plan before arriving at the destination? If possible, choose a site that can be reached by bike. In this way, in addition to saving on gasoline and energy, you will do a different and fun activity.

If you can’t go by bike, you can also walk! The idea is that you take advantage of the way to move around the city.

TIP: In many cities like Madrid or Barcelona you can rent bikes to ride around the city!

A picnic without plastic is possible

Don’t forget to throw all the leftovers from your picnic in the trash!

The best tip we can give you for an eco plan is to leave the site as you found it. We recommend that you carry a garbage bag and put in it all the possible waste that you generate.

In addition, it is essential that we continue to recycle even when we are away from home. Remember that it is these small gestures that you make individually that have a big impact on the environment.

Think about the menu… here’s our proposal
