Green Your Picnic: Pack Eco-Friendly Food

Picnic basket 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 # 2: Eat Your Veggies

Rethink your go-to ham sandwich and make the best of summer’s bountiful produce — meat doesn’t keep well in the sun, anyway. Try vegetarian alternatives like hearty portobello mushroom burgers or a refreshing bean-and-corn salad. For more ideas, check out NRDC's Eat Local site to find seasonal ingredients or a farmers' market in your 'hood.
