Having a picnic this summer? Be sure to enjoy all the greenery . . . but don’t forget the “greening.” Here are tips to help you make sure your picnic is earth friendly:

-Choose a picnic site you can get to without a car — by walking, biking, hiking, or taking public transportation.

-For your menu, choose fresh, local foods, ideally ones grown organically or with minimal processing.

-Use washable and reusable utensils, tablecloths, napkins, thermoses, and food containers

-Make it a waste-free event by recycling bottles, cans, and other materials.

-Use less-toxic insecticides, such as a citrus candle or incense, to keep bugs away.
