How to have a greener Easter this year

Easter is a fun time for all; heaps of chocolatey-treats, glorious spring sunshine and the smell of fresh flowers in the air. There are many egg-cellent ways to celebrate Easter with your family and many annual traditions to continue with, but unfortunately, some may not be very good for the environment. So, this year, why not try going greener? We’ve put together some helpful tips and tricks to help you have a happy and sustainable Easter holiday!

 

Easter basket  

The Easter basket is a holiday tradition and is perfect for collecting all of your chocolate eggs in, whilst out on an Easter egg hunt. Although, nowadays a lot of shop-bought Easter baskets are made of plastic and are not as durable or enivornmentally friendly as the classic wicker Easter basket. If you don’t have an old Easter basket around the house, why not reuse a wicker hamper basket instead? You could even embellish it with some Easter decorations - sustainable and stylish!

 

Colour-dye eggs

Dying hard-boiled eggs and creating attractive designs is all part of the Easter fun. Instead of using artificial food colouring from plastic bottles this year, why not try using some food and drink items that you have in your home? Beetroot, chilli powder, lemon peels, blueberries and coffee are all great, natural items that can be used to create vivid colours!

 

Recycle your Easter egg packaging correctly

All of your tasty Easter eggs should come in recyclable packaging now, but don’t forget to separate and prepare them correctly before recycling. Both the plastic moulds and cardboard boxes can be recycled, but be sure you flatten the cardboard boxes before putting them the bin. Most of the foil chocolate wrappers can also be recycled at some recycling centres – but check with your local council to find out first. Don’t forget to recycle your Easter cards and decorations where possible too!
