George Nesna, director of, provides some useful tips for a perfect picnic: “Ensure your food doesn’t spill everywhere and is easy to transport by using lidded glass jars when preparing your picnic basket, which is also a great way to be more environmentally friendly.

“In order to have a more sustainable picnic, try to pack real plates and, if that’s not an option, bring compostable disposable plates with you. If possible, use beeswax wraps for your food. These are reusable, compostable and biodegradable.

“Have a cool box with you so you can keep the food fresh and the drinks ice cold.

“Don’t forget to bring wet wipes for cleaning your hands, or even plates, and bin bags as well, so that all rubbish can be easily disposed of, and pack a chopping board for your picnic - it's always handy to have a flat surface to chop or place food on.”
