Five Essential Paper Items for Picnics and Outings

by Jitesh Shah Online Shop Owner
Summer is the time for picnics and outings. Preparing for a picnic is not as fun as it may sound and people often overlook many essential items while packing for an outing. This guide will help you shortlist the essentials you should carry to make the picnic trouble-free and enjoyable.

Paper Napkins
Spills and messes are part of every picnic and you would need lots and lots of paper napkins. Have a hefty supply of quality facial tissues and napkins. Our suggested brands are Scott, Andrex or Cotonelle, all three from the house of Kimberly-Clark. If you have a generous budget, you may go for Kleenex, the ultimate choice in paper napkins.

Disposable Plates
There are many varieties of disposable plate but the most economy is associated with paper plates. Regular paper plates are available for as low as £2.30 per pack of 100 plates. If you intend to have greasy food, grease resistant paper plates are available at £6.00 per pack of 100. Paper disposable plates are also ideal for picnics as they light-weight and less bulky to transport. Make sure you do not litter the picnic spot with used plates. Instead, dispose them off responsibly and safely after use.

Paper Cups
You would also need lots of disposable cups. A wide variety of disposable cups are available but again, cost wise, paper cups are the best. You may opt for biodegradable cups if you are sensitive about the environment. Styrofoam cups are also good options as they are as lightweight as paper products but more resistant to heat, making them ideal for hot beverages to retain their heat and cold drinks to remain cool for longer duration. Try as much as possible to avoid plastic cups for picnics because disposing off of plastic waste is a serious problem at all popular picnic spots.
Paper Table Clothes
For better hygiene and an even more enjoyable outing, have a good supply of paper table cloths ready with you while going for picnics. These will not only serve as table clothes but might even come handy for many other applications during the outing, such as laying down on the grass before settling down to idle. Paper table clothes may also be useful for packing left over food supplies. Dispotex and Lotus Professional are some suggested brands that are cheap and best.

Disposable Cutlery
Carrying silverware out for camping is not always practical. Instead, opt for disposable cutlers. Plastic and wooden disposable spoons and forks are available but we suggest plastic as they are more economic and causes less harm to the nature than using wooden items. A set of 6” white coloured plastic spoons, forks,knives and tea spoons come for as low as £1.28 for a pack of 100. Wooden cutlery, which offers more elegant will cost you a minimum of £3.65 for a similar quantity. 

Since you cannot do without disposable products while camping or for picnics, you must be well aware about the harms of careless littering of such products. Your favorite picnic spots should remain enjoyable not only for the time being, but also for your children and grandchildren. So, dispose off the used disposable products sensibly before rounding up your outing.
