Reduce the use of plastic bags

What can you do in the Park?

  • Bring your own reusable bag to carry your lunch or picnic.
  • Consider a picnic basket, or refrigerated backpack. 
  • Use reusable containers or beeswax wrap for your food or go nude! Try packing a nude lunch or picnic to share.

How can you do it at home?

  • Use a reusable shopping bag, put a foldable tote in your handbag or car.
  • Use your own reusable produce bag or container... or no bag at all! 
  • Use reusable containers or beeswax wrap for your food.
  • Purchase larger packs of snacks, and pack them in small containers for “grab and go" snacks. 
  • Cut down on bin liners by using a compostable bag for the largest bin; line the smaller bins with newspaper (or go liner-free!) and consolidate all waste into large bag on bin night.
