Precycling on a Picnic
Picnics in the park are a great way to enjoy warmer weather. You may already “Pack Your Trash” as suggested by signs across the country, but we’ve got ways to reduce trash altogether.
This is a technique called precycling, and it saves money while reducing waste. Precycling is a way of preventing waste before it happens. You may already be finding ways to precycle and you didn’t even know it! With your basket packed and ready to go, use these tips as you head out for a picnic.
Instead of using plastic bags for your snacks and sandwiches, check out reusable options which are machine washable and made from recycled materials. ChicoBag offers nice looking reusable baggies made from recycled PET, a type of plastic: ChicoBag Reusable Bags, Pack of 3.
Rest assured that they’re made from food-safe materials tested to be BPA, phthalate, PVC and lead free. Another reason we appreciate ChicoBag is for their repurposing and recycling program for all brands and types of reusable bags. Send them all of your reusable bags, functional or not and they will distribute them to low income families ready to start using reusable bags or recycle them into new useful products such as rugs.
