It's a Picnic

We may be moving from one season to another, but it's still warm enough in some areas for a few more picnics in the park. If you're going to venture out for a fabulous lunch-in-a-basket, check out this eco picnic basket for two from Uncommon Goods.

The basket includes bamboo plates, cutting board and utensils, wine glasses made from recycled glass, dye and chemical free cotton insulated lining and embroidered natural cotton napkins.

If you don't want to buy a brand new picnic set, pick up a basket from the thrift store or a swap meet and fill it with vintage glasses (my favorites are from restaurants that have closed up shop), cloth napkins in terrific prints, silverware (you can find beautiful antique silverware in small quantities at thrift stores...perfect for a picnic for two!) and plates both large and small (my favorites are antique plates from hotels, country clubs and universities). After your picnic, pack up all of your re-usable goodies to take home and you'll help to decrease the amount of trash that ends up in overflowing landfills.
