Reduce its environmental footprint.

During an environmental event, a low-impact picnic can serve as a medium for exchanging information.

Indeed, food has a strong impact on the environment. Thus, in the richest countries, the environmental footprint is about 4 (It would take 4 planets for our children to have the same resources as us).

Among the elements that one can implement for a low impact picnic, one can make a picnic with the following criteria:

  • zero waste;
  • vegetarian, vegan or avoiding high-impact meat [1];
  • From the less “noble” parts;
  • local and seasonal.

Picnic recipes can be collected beforehand, in order to be shared during the event.

Having a good time is the best way to share tasty recipes, discover new tastes, and thus, change your habits with pleasure.
