10 Tips to make Easter eco-friendly

10 Tips to make Easter eco-friendly

Here’s 10 tips to celebrate EASTER in a sustainable way! Easter is one of the most anticipated times of year for kids beside Christmas, so a great opportunity to get everyone involved in a ‘green’ way with simple tips and tricks for an affordable and sustainable Easter this bank holiday.

1. Reuse and recycle your Easter decorations

From picking fallen twigs and dry branches at the park or from your garden, to corks, bows and ribbons, coloured paper or cards, dried flowers, yellow buttons…there’s a lot you can reuse!

2. Eco-friendly fillable paper Easter eggs
Unlike plastic eggs, they are biodegradable and will not end up in landfills. Alternatively, you can create your own Easter eggs with papier-mâché.
3. Shop locally if you can
Give your local shop a boost or head for your local farm which is a great day out in itself for the kids.
4. Conscious shopping
It’s worth checking the fridge and pantry before heading out to do your Easter groceries! A little planning goes a long way on this one. Choose ‘loose’ fruit and veg, and products with minimal and recyclable packaging.
5. Try Fair Trade chocolates
This is an opportunity to browse the wide choice of chocolates on offer and look out for Fair trade labels when choosing chocolates and desserts.
6. Use eco-friendly tableware
There’s a great choice of eco-friendly alternatives to single-use plastic cups, plastic cutlery and serving plates out there. For instance, plastic-FREE ‘Bagasse’ tableware and biodegradable takeaway packaging products are perfect for home parties and events. You can use biodegradable serving trays, plates & bowls, and choose between reusable or biodegradable cutlery.
7. Eco-friendly Easter egg basket
Besides the usual wicker basket you can use, we’ve got a quick tip for you! Simply make a hole on either side of your bagasse bowls, and feed through a piece of kitchen rope laced with yellow ribbon and flowers (optional) for an eco-friendly biodegradable Easter basket! You can use it as your table centrepiece too.
8. Easter trails & Easter egg hunts
Nothing like heading out to the outdoors and have a great family fun at your local parks or check this link to the National Trust Easter Events for a wide range of activities and find the nearest trail near you, so it’s worth keeping an eye out.

9. Device free Easter break
Time to switch off all devices for a day or a few hours (more likely, but every effort counts!) during the Easter break to relax, refuel and energise – what’s more, it has a positive impact all around as it save energy too! 

10. A ‘Green’ Easter
Easter is after all the beginning of Spring, so getting the kids to sprinkle some seeds in the garden or simply start an herb garden on your kitchen window sill is another way to enjoy a ‘green’ Easter holiday!
