Easter is just a few days away, and now is the perfect time to begin planning on how you can make the day a little bit 'greener.'
  • Reuse baskets you already have around the house for Easter Day and gifts.
  • Buy local eggs to dye and eat.
  • Use a natural egg dye, they're safer.
  • If you're planning a Easter dinner, buy local food from a farmers market for your meal.
  • Instead of chocolate bunnies, buy fair trade chocolate instead.
  • Consider using paper grass instead of plastic grass for Easter baskets. Once Easter is over, compost the paper grass.
  • Don't spend money on cut, store-bought flowers. Instead, buy flowers that you can plant and will grow in a container or a yard.
  • Instead of real gifts, give a Heifer gift.

So how will you be making your Easter greener?
