With lockdown restrictions easing and the weather warming up, picnic season is getting into full swing. It’s great to see lots of people out in the sunshine, finally able to catch up with friends and loved ones again. We’ve enjoyed spotting all the different ways people set up their picnic patch – from a simple rug with takeaway food to the full outdoor room with matching tableware. Some people are so creative! Whatever your style is, we’ve rounded up a raft of the essentials you’ll need to help you get the picnic party started, the sustainable way.
