A day in the sun and sand doesn’t need to rely on disposables. When we think of a picnic, we often think of lots of plastic-wrapped food, disposable utensils, and paper towels. But with a few simple swaps, you can help pack a trash-free beach picnic for an unforgettable beach picnic.

Step 1: Prepare your food
Pack up a variety of treats with Durbl’s reusable silicone bags. Sandwiches, salads, fruit slices, and snacks can be stored securely in these bags. The Durbl bags’ excellent seal keeps sand out and keeps food fresh.

Easy food ideas:
Sandwiches: Place turkey, cheese, lettuce, and tomato on whole-wheat bread in a Durbl silicone food storage bag.
Fruit salad: Place sliced watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, and blueberries in a Durbl lunchbox to keep the fruit fresh and tender.
Energy bars: Make peanut butter oatmeal energy bars ahead of time and store them in a Durbl bag for a quick and easy meal.

Step 2: Portable Cooler
Fill a Durbl large-capacity silicone bag with ice to create a portable cooler. Ice keeps drinks and perishables cold, making it ideal for a beach picnic.

Cooler Ideas:
Cold Drinks: Fill a Durbl quart bag with ice and your favorite drink for an excellent, icy taste.
Salads: Prepare a green salad and refrigerate it in a Durbl container to ensure it tastes fresh.

Step 3: DIY Snacks and Drinks
Use Durbl snack bags to create healthy snacks and refreshing drinks. Reusable Durbl bags are perfect for homemade popsicles and frozen fruit.

Snack and Drink Ideas:
Homemade Popsicles: Pour juice into a Durbl silicone bag, seal it, and freeze it to enjoy at the beach.
Frozen Fruit: Freeze blueberry, strawberry, and mango chunks in a Durbl sandwich bag for a delicious summer snack.
Iced Coffee: Make iced coffee at home in a Durbl quart size bag and enjoy it at the beach anytime.

Step 4: Pack Out Trash
One of the fundamental principles of an eco-friendly beach picnic is to leave no trace. Take all trash with you, including food wrappers or disposable items.

Durbl’s silicone bags are reusable and washable, so you can easily clean them after use to avoid adding to beach trash. We recommend bringing a sizeable Durbl gallon bag to collect trash or pick up litter.

Have a few extra Durbl bags to store wet swimsuits, keep your phone dry, or store leaky items like sunscreen.

By incorporating Durbl’s reusable bags into your beach picnic plans, you can positively impact the environment while enjoying delicious food and drinks. Pack responsibly, reduce waste, and adopt reusable alternatives for a more eco-friendly beach experience.
