Be a Good Egg
Make Easter eco-friendly with small changes that make a big difference. Here are four simple but effective ways you can have a more sustainable Easter.
Easter is a time of renewal, reflection and rejuvenation. And there’s plenty to love about chocolate eggs, delicious lunches and time spent with loved ones. Make it even better by incorporating sustainable practices into your festivities that are good for your wallet and good for the environment! Here are four simple but effective ways you can have a more eco-friendly Easter.
Go for items that your family will cherish using again and again. From sustainable woven baskets perfect for egg-hunting, to Easter decorations you can revisit year after year, it’s the perfect time to start new family traditions. For more inspiration, get your kids to create their own decorations. An Easter crafternoon, with colourful eggs, fluffy chicks, and art materials that unleash creativity is always a winner.
Choose Sustainable Easter Treats
The joy of chocolate Easter eggs should not be underestimated, but the cost to the environment and landfill is huge. Prioritise organic and fair-trade Easter goodies and look for products that have sustainable and easily recyclable packaging. Even better? Engage your inner-baker and make your own treats. Hot cross buns straight from the oven? Easter cookies? Chocolate nests with mini eggs? Delicious, cost effective and the kids will love playing sous-chef.
There’s nothing like supporting local businesses to instil the glow of goodwill. Not only will small businesses appreciate the sale but it’s the perfect opportunity to connect you’re your community. Even better, you’ll be helping your local community, reducing your carbon footprint and leave the store with your thoughtful purchases feeling extremely good about your choices.
It’s always kind to the environment minimise waste, but especially important to be mindful during key festivities where purchasing and packaging is at a high. Invest in Easter décor that you can store and re-welcome each year. Buy pieces that you look forward to re-using from special tablecloths and napkins to items that bring the spirit of Easter into your home (check out our favourites from Kmart). After all, it feels great to be a good egg.
Small sustainable changes can have a big impact, ensuring you have a memorable and eco-friendly Easter year after year.
