With one of our favourite seasons quickly coming to an end, we never miss a chance to connect with nature and spend time outdoors. With this in mind, we’ve put together a quick guide for creating the ultimate sustainable summer picnic so you can take advantage of the last long, lazy days of summer in style.
An eco-friendly throw is a must-have for a comfortable outdoor dining experience and we love this plush option from Charlie and Lee. Hand loomed in Turkey using traditional methods, this throw is sustainably made with 100% Turkish cotton and perfect for all of your outdoor adventures.
Single use plastics are disposed by the million every.single.day. affecting both the cities we live in and the oceans we swim in. This year, fight plastic pollution by storing your picnic eats in stylish sustainable packaging. From innovative beeswax sandwich wraps to pretty glass containers, eco-friendly can still be super cute. Check out Well.ca for a great selection, at affordable prices.
Summer Inspired Recipes
Healthy, summer inspired recipes are a must, and this year we’re taking inspiration from Sisley Killam of The Pure Life. From delicious raw collard wraps to easy dips and green smoothies, Sisley has no shortage of plant based recipes to elevate your late summer picnic.
A Natural Solution to Bugs
Protect yourself from pesky insects with a stick or two of our ethically sourced Palo Santo. Used both to cleanse energy and as a natural alternative to standard bug sprays, light a stick of palo, smudge around your immediate area and enjoy the many benefits of this aromatic Ecuadorian wood.
Face + Body Mists
We don’t go anywhere without one of our Everyday Face + Body Mists on hand. Crafted with zesty witch hazel and cooling essential oils, they’re the perfect solution to help maintain composure on scorching summer days.
Carve out time, stay present and enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
