What is it?

A time to enjoy the company of close ones for an outdoor meal without single-use plastics.

Take part in Plastic Free July by hosting your own Plastic Free Picnic! Meet with your pod, break out those reusable containers, cutlery, and drink vessels and head down to your favourite greenspace (just be mindful to keep a physical distance with those outside of your household). Snap a photo and share on social media using the hashtag #PlasticFreeMB, telling us how you’re taking on the plastic-free challenge.

Our suggestions:

Bring your own reusable cutlery, cups and plates

Transport moist food in a tupperware or glass containers

Glass jars work well too!

Give snack pouches or beeswax wrap a try for drier items

Use a blanket or bedsheet as a picnic mat

Make sure to take your leftovers home
