The Urban Picnic Boxsal Boombox

Honestly, you'd probably do better buying a traditional picnic basket, considering how wasteful it would be to use this and then just toss it away if picnic trips are a regular part of your life. But then we imagined using this completely recyclable boombox themed picnic set for a foray out to our fav local park (nearly everything can be thrown into the compost afterward) and then returning home to reuse the box to store away old audio cassettes, CDs, or other tech gear inside at home.

The Urban Picnic Boxsal comes complete with:

  • 1) BOXSAL PICNIC BOX
  • 4) COMPOSTABLE TRAYS
  • 4) COMPOSTABLE LARGE BOWLS
  • 4) COMPOSTABLE SMALL BOWLS
  • 4) COMPOSTABLE UTENSIL SETS
  • 4) COMPOSTABLE COLD CUPS<
  • 8) RECYCLED NAPKINS
  • 1) COMPOSTABLE TRASH BAG

Do we think the $35 price tag is reasonable for what is designed to be used once and then tossed away? Not really. But it does inspire us to keep an eye out for some of the boxes we receive for tech gear that look awfully similar to the Boxsal box (sans the boombox graphics, of course) and could easily be appropriated in similar manner. We'd love to see Boxsal step up and design a reusable model in the future, perhaps incorporating an actual speaker hookup into a faux boombox design?
