Easter is almost here and we thought we would give some tips to help make Easter more of a Zero Waste Holiday.

More fun, Less Stuff

 Plan to have some fun family activities instead focusing on the stuff. Here are some ideas:

 making breakfast : easter bunny eggs

messy art : paint filled eggs

have a race : egg and spoon race

Skip the plastic grass

If basket fillers are needed use shredded paper.

If you need to buy a basket, buy it at a thrift storeeaster-1713428_640

Make a basket

Repurpose a paper bag to make a basket.

Use local eggs and natural dye.shell-2152029_640

Support local farms this Easter when purchasing eggs. Skip the store bought -dye and use natural dyes you probably have many of the veggies in your frig that can be used for colouring.
