Tips on How to Green Your Summer Picnics and Barbecues

By Inhabitots

Tis the season for firing up the BBQ and laying out blankets to have an outdoor picnic in the summer sunshine! There are myriad ways you can make your alfresco cooking and dining experiences more eco-friendly. Consider making your BBQ meatless with these 10 kid-friendly vegan dishes for summer BBQs. Top off the meal with these gluten-free brownies with coconut icing. Another fun snack or dessert kids will love are these vegan, gelatin-free fruit and veggie juice jigglers that look and taste just like Jello but are much healthier. Swap out the one-time use plastic cutlery and paper plates for Green Sprouts corn based feeding gear for tots , and Lifefactory's durable glassware. When it comes to serving up drinks, say no to paper, plastic or styrofoam cups! Instead, have everyone in your crew use their favorite reusable water bottle! Transporting food items to the beach, park or neighbor's house? Then stock up on BPA-free CoverBlubber and you'll never need plastic wrap or aluminum foil to seal your dishes again! Of course, don't forget to slather on the sunscreen before you head out. Read the EWG's 2014 guide to sunscreens which includes sun safety tips and this year's top rated sunscreens .
