Green Your Picnic: Location, Location

Picnic in Central Park Summer's here! To celebrate the long, hot days, rally your friends and pack a picnic. This week's tips will help you keep it green.

Tip # 1: Keep it local.

Don't be tempted to drive to your picnic. There's nothing more summery than strapping a basket to the back of your bicycle or strolling to the nearest meadow. Discover the Forest is a handy website by which to find a nearby park, or just open up Google Maps and look for the green patches. You'll be surprised at what pockets of nature you can find just around the block. If you can't get there with muscle power, consider taking public transit or carpooling.

Tip # 2: Eat your veggies.

Tip # 3: Leave no trace.

Tip # 4: Engage with nature.

Tell us: What's your favorite place to picnic?
