Easter is a great holiday to spend with the family because there are activities involved -- dying eggs, egg hunts and gift-giving.
As with anything, it's very simple to make your holiday more environmentally friendly! Here are some quick Greener Easter tips!
1. GREENER EASTER BASKETS
Just use the basket from last year -- which you saved, right? -- and fill it with cut-up newspaper and magazine clippings. It's not like that cheap plastic stuff really approximates grass, anyway! Plus, it'll be easier to clean up.
2. GREENER GOODIES
Fill the baskets with local, organic chocolates and low-impact, usable gifts that encourage green living and thinking -- like bike accessories, or solar-powered toys.
3. BETTER EASTER EGGS
Dye eggs that you'll actually eat -- cage-free, organic and all the rest -- and do it with natural dyes.
4. GREENER EASTER NEXT YEAR
Put your Easter baskets in storage for next year -- and watch stoop sales and flea markets for anything you really wish you had but don't want to buy new -- like those plastic eggs, for example.
