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 store
Make a basket
Repurpose a paper bag to make a basket.
Use local eggs and natural dye.
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.
