Eco-Friendly Easter Baskets
No Easter goes without presents. Easter Baskets are a popular Easter tradition usually filled with chocolates, eggs, and all sorts of tasty treats. If you are tired of cheap plastic store-bought baskets and looking for more sustainable alternatives, the greenest option is to use a basket you already have on hand. There are always some baskets hanging around, which can be spruced up to look magical! If you do need to go out and buy your baskets, try going to charity shops first - they always seem to have plenty of them.
Skip the Plastic GrassYou have chosen an eco-friendly option for an Easter basket. What will you fill it with? While Easter plastic green grass is a fun decoration, but from the ecological viewpoint, it is a real weapon against our planet because it is not the least bit eco-friendly. It just ends up in the trash and takes forever to breakdown. Fortunately, you have several options when you want to make this tradition more eco-friendly. You can shred green construction paper and recycle it after the holiday or use seed paper and natural moss fillers. You can also get creative by picking something that you can reuse after the holiday, such as fabric, ribbon, or a scarf.
What About Plastic Eggs?
Plastic eggs are symbols of Easter celebrations. And since they are available in a variety of shades and sizes, they are perfect for Easter hunts. However, after the end of the feast, you will throw them away, and they will take hundreds of years to decompose. So, why not use real eggs, biodegradable paper eggs, or wooden eggs? Using natural colorants, you can have fun painting them and decorating them with unique designs with your family before the big day.
The Big Eco-Friendly Lunch
After all the hard work of hiding the eggs for the egg hunt in the garden, and the even more difficult task of helping the kids eat them, it is time for a big family roast dinner. The best eco-friendly advice is to purchase your goods locally - it is better for the planet and better for the pocket too. Make use of your local farm shop where you are sure to find fresh organic produce, and get outside on your bike into nature this Easter. Bring plenty of delicious Easter-themed goodies, and don't forget to pack the essentials - disposable plates, compostable cutlery, and biodegradable bowls and trays.
