Spring is coming. So do are picnics! 春天来了,一起去野餐吧!


While winter might have arrived somewhere (no GOT spoiler here), spring is unquestionably coming to town.

We have a long week ahead before Labor Days’ vacation, so we believe that there is no better way to celebrate Monday and Earth Day than start planning an outdoor getaway.

虽然冬天可能已经抵达某个地方(这里没有剧透),但毫无疑问,春天已经来了。

离劳动节假期还有一周多的时间,在此之前,让我们以户外度假的方式来庆祝周一和地球日吧!

If you are already following Zero Waste Shanghai, organizing a Zero Waste picnic will be an easy step, since you'll already be collecting food storage containers and repurpose jars to use containers. Also, some of our Zero Waste Travel tips can be useful for the occasion.

Here some tips for your picnic, and may (yes! That's an old school pun!) the sun be with you!

如果你已经在关注“零浪费上海”,组织一次“零浪费野餐”对你来说会是一件简单的事情,因为你已经在收集可以重复利用的食物容器,玻璃罐子。此外,我们的一些“零浪费”旅行小贴士在这种场合也很有用。愿太阳与你同在!

  1. Outdoor Blanket. If you like outdoor activities, including picnics, you might consider investing in one of those big double-face blankets. Normally one side is waterproof to prevent the tablecloth from the damp. However, it isn't a must. Unused old sheets or beach towels can work just fine!

1)野餐垫。如果你喜欢户外活动,包括野餐,你可以考虑买一条双面野餐垫。通常一面是防水的,以防止桌布受潮。当然这并不是必须的。不用的旧床单或沙滩毛巾也可以!

2) Basket? No, thank you. Although the image of a traditional picnic includes a fancy hay basket, it might not be the most practical solution for a picnic in 2019. Your backpack is simply perfect! It has all the space you need, you can carry it on your shoulder so that you can comfortably reach your destination cycling, hiking, or even by metro!

2)篮子?不,谢谢。虽然传统野餐的形象里通常会有一个别致的干草编织篮,但在2019年这也许并不是最适用的。用你的背包就很完美了!它将足够容纳你所需要的一切,背着它你可以自由轻松的抵达目的地,无论是骑车,徒步,还是搭乘地铁!

3) Bring your own water bottle. There are foldable bottles that are easy to carry once empty and, around the city, it isn't hard to find refillable stations near public places. If any of your friends bring their own bottle is even a more convenient solution.

There are also colorful foldable glasses that can be used if you want to share for example beers, wine or any other beverage.

Choose glass or aluminum on plastic brands, and remember to throw them in the correct recycling bin.

3)戴上自己的水瓶。有一些可折叠的瓶子,一旦空了就很容易携带,而且在城市的各个角落,在公共场所附近也不难找到饮用水补给处。

4) Bring your own cutlery. There are reusable utensils made out of wood, bamboo or stainless steel. Another option is to prepare food that is convenient to share by using your hands or vegetable to help to pick up sauces or to wrap ingredients together. Use washable cloth napkins to clean your hands, instead of single-use tissue. Avoid wet wipes.

4)自带餐具。有一些可重复使用的餐具是由木头、竹子或不锈钢制成的。另一种选择是准备方便分享的食物,或者用蔬菜来包裹酱汁或把配料。用可洗的餐巾布擦手,而不是一次性纸巾或湿巾纸。

5) Prove your cooking ability! You can prepare tasty salads or savory tarts by combining some leftovers from your fridge, always a great idea to avoid food wasting.

Bread and vegetables are a good support to almost any sort of food. Besides being perfect side dishes, they also function as cutlery for countless kinds of hummus and dipping sauces.

Fruits come with natural wrapping, and often even the peel is edible.

5)展现你厨艺的时刻!你可以把冰箱里剩下的食物混在一起做成美味的沙拉或馅饼,避免食物浪费总是一个好主意。面包和蔬菜永远是最好的辅食,除了作为完美的配菜,他们还能用来蘸各种各样的鹰嘴豆泥,蘸酱汁。以天然包装携带水果,有些水果的皮也是可食用的。

6) Collect everything before leaving. The park welcomes you to spend some time enjoying the sun, relaxing surrounded by flowers, birds, and fresh green grass. The least you can do is leaving nothing behind.

Use empty jars to gather food scraps to compost at home.

6)离开前把东西收拾好。公园欢迎你去享受阳光,在鲜花、小鸟和新鲜青草的环绕下放松。你需要做的是不要留下痕迹。可以用空罐子收集食物残渣在家堆肥。
