Summer is fast approaching, bringing with it a wealth of outdoor activities that maximize every moment: Perhaps you’ll gather your women’s circle for an awe-inspiring waterfall hike, go on a healthy road trip, or take your workout to the beach so you can be outside as much as possible. Or, instead of planning an excursion, you can simply gather in your local green space to socialize with friends and eat under the sun. That alfresco life is low-key and requires little planning—so, hey, it’s not too late to get together a picnic for this Memorial Day weekend. And since they are partly about basking in the beauty of Mother Nature, it’s important to make sure your outdoor shindig leaves little impact on her health.
