Easter is almost here and that means it's time to start thinking about how to celebrate in a way that is eco-friendly and fun. There are lots of great ideas out there, so we've put together a few of our favourites to help get you started. From simple tips like using recycled materials for your Easter decorations, to more elaborate ideas like creating an Easter scavenger hunt using natural items, we've got you covered. So read on and start planning your green Easter celebration!
Easter Egg – if you are vegan there is still a way for you to enjoy egg decorating. Choose from wooden or ceramic Easter eggs which can be painted and used year after year. You can find them in craft stores and online around the globe so keep looking until you find one that suits best your style and your budget.
Easter Basket – what is better than one basket? Two actually; make sure they are both plastic free by choosing either pottery made or simply using a cotton bag. You can even make it yourself from old newspapers or shoe boxes. If these are too big, how about using old yogurt cups to create a mini version. And for something really different why not choose locally made sweets and home grown herbs as fillers?
Easter Decorations – go creative by making Easter bunnies from toilet paper rolls or old socks (just make sure you wash them first!). These are super easy to make and most likely you already have all what you need at home.
Easter Wishes – instead of buying a card to send to your friends and family, how about picking up the phone and calling them instead with your warm Easter wishes. What a great opportunity to cath up on the latest family gossips too! If you are not tired of Zoom calls yet, how about inviting the loved ones to a Zoom meeting so that you all can have an opportunity to catch up and make some new memories.
There are plenty of ways to have an enjoyable and eco-friendly Easter. We hope that our tips have given you some ideas on how to make your holiday celebration more sustainable. If you have any other suggestions, please share them in the comments section below. Happy Easter!
