National Picnic Week 2018 is this week! Running from the 15th to the 24th June, this event was created with the aim to encourage people to take the ideal opportunity to get together over a picnic. Having a picnic is one of the UK’s most popular summer traditions and is a fantastic way of making the most of outdoor spaces in your local area throughout the warmer months of the year.
Having a picnic is a great way to spend time with friends and family in the summer at a minimal cost. And not only does a picnic bring people together, but it also has many proven health and wellbeing benefits as well. Taking some time away from your home and cutting out a few hours use of electrical devices can help people to communicate without a mobile phone and have more meaningful interactions with each other. Which also has been proven to reduce the risks of depression and feeling disconnected.
Since the event was first founded around a decade ago, it has largely grown and become a staple date in the media calendar and being timed at the peak of picnicking season, broadcasters, radio and even television channels have been eager to get involved.
Here at NBB Recycled Furniture we are big supporters of National Picnic Week and believe that all picnics should be enjoyed in style! We manufacture an extensive range of 100% Recycled Plastic Furniture, which includes our Picnic Tables and Benches & Seating which can make picnicking more enjoyable and comfortable for everyone. We also offer a range of Litter Bins and its always essential to have a few of these dotted around a picnic area.
Our recycled plastic furniture does not only benefit picnickers, but it also greatly benefits the environment, with our Standard Picnic Table saving around 2100 milk bottles from going to the landfill! And aside from the environmental benefits, did you know that recycled plastic will never rot, crack or splinter? Unlike its timber alternatives, which many parks and picnic areas may have eroding away in them due to bad weather conditions. It is also completely maintenance free and extremely robust and durable, simply wiping down one of our tables is the most you will need to do!
