AVOID

  1. Avoid plastic when you can - small decisions add up
  2. These picnic blankets typically blend a variety of materials which makes recycling them effectively impossible
  3. Wear and tear will easily eat away at these blankets. Most people won't be able to get more than several uses from these blankets. They also don't feel great to the touch.
  4. Once they are disposed of they end up in landfill or worse...our waterways where they emit microplastics
