6 Ways to Have an Eco-Friendly Easter

6 Ways to Have an Eco-Friendly Easter

Charlotte Davies

Easter is a joyful time of year filled with tradition, family gatherings, and festivities - and we’re looking forward to celebrating with a sustainable approach! As we celebrate this holiday, read below our top suggestions for a greener Easter while still enjoying the fun and traditions.

1. Eco-Easter Baskets

Forget the traditional plastic-wrap baskets and opt for eco-friendly alternatives. Wicker baskets and recycled paper baskets are a great way to present gifts, on-theme with the Easter holiday.

They’re also a great way to present gifts such as home-made treats, hot-cross buns, and a range of other lovingly prepared sweet treats. Get creative with your basket decorations and gifts for a memorable and considerate Easter.

2. Eco-Egg Hunt

A great way to celebrate and entertain the kids; add an eco-friendly approach to your easter egg hunt this year! Hide alternatives to plastic eggs or foil-wrapped chocolates, with eggs created from sustainable materials or organic chocolate options.

Here you can find wooden eggs - sustainably sourced and perfect for DIY decorations. A win-win this Easter

3. Support Local Farmers

When preparing your Easter feast, opt for locally sourced, seasonal ingredients from farmers' markets or farm shops. Supporting local farmers reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting food long distances, and promotes sustainable agricultural practices.

4. Donate to Eco-Causes

In the spirit of giving, consider donating to environmental organisations or charities that work towards protecting the planet. Your donation can support conservation efforts, reforestation projects, or anything meaningful to you!

5. Plant a Spring Garden

Celebrate the arrival of spring by planting a garden with your family or friends. Whether it’s flowers, herbs, fruit or vegetables, gardening is a rewarding and eco-friendly activity that connects you with nature. Plus, homegrown produce adds a special touch to your Easter meals.
