Here are some quick tips and things to keep in mind if you will be gifting for Easter this year!

 

6 Ways to Make This Easter an Eco One 

 

  1.  Go to your local market or store where you can buy in bulk - Buying bulk will get rid of a whole lot of unnecessary packaging. Just remember your own container or bag.

  2.  Avoid prepackaged items - Little plastic eggs and toys in a plastic basket covered in a plastic wrapping?! You get the idea, try to stay away from those. 

  3.  Make your own - Whip together some peanut butter cups, pick up some egg moulds, cookies, cake, or even easier take a trip to your local bakery! 

  4.  Reuse what you have - If you have items already ie: baskets, plastic eggs, decorations, make it a tradition and bring them back every year. 

  5.  Buy an experience gift - Get them a night at the movies, trampoline park, craft night, even a scavenger hunt. 

  6.  Purchase second hand toys/clothes for spring - I know, second hand might be a bad word for some people, but there are some really great local preloved clothing stores with great items just waiting to be found.  

 

I ended up bringing three mason jars to the Bulk Barn, got the tin container on sale at Michael's and cut up some newspaper for the filling.  I threw in a movie ticket for my son and whoever he wants to bring.  Will my 13 year old make fun of me for this zero waste Easter gift? Most definitely!
