Drink bottles for all from Earth Lust. We could talk all day about how awesome their design choices are. Not only will these add bling to your picnic, but are totally eco-friendly and come in many sizes.

OTHER GEAR YOU NEED:

Learn how to build your own solar cooker – then take it along on a sunny picnic!

Reynold’s Wrap 100% Recycled Foil for your barbecue OR try one of the other recycled foil brands out there.

Biodegradable dishes and flatware made from materials that compost readily. This is a far better choice that paper, plastic, or Styrofoam.

See many more picnic items at Picnic Fun – just check the fine print for materials (i.e. avoid plastics).

Eco-friendly garbage bags for cleaning up at the end.
