Hop into Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Easter Tips for a Greener Celebration

March 18, 2024


As the Easter season approaches, many of us look forward to gathering with family and friends, indulging in delicious treats, and partaking in festive traditions. However, amidst the joy and excitement, it's important to consider the environmental impact of our celebrations. From plastic eggs to excessive packaging, traditional Easter practices often generate a significant amount of waste that can harm our planet. But fear not! This year, let's embrace the spirit of sustainability and make eco-conscious choices to reduce waste and promote a greener Easter.


In this blog post, we'll explore a variety of eco-friendly Easter tips that will not only help you minimize your environmental footprint but also add a touch of creativity and mindfulness to your holiday festivities. So, grab your baskets and get ready to hop into sustainability with us!


Natural Egg Dyes: Instead of using artificial food coloring, opt for natural dyes made from ingredients like turmeric, beetroot, spinach, and blueberries to dye your Easter eggs. Not only are they non-toxic, but they also create beautiful, vibrant colors. We're excited to try this tutorial about naturally dyeing easter eggs from Danielle Walker. 

Reusable Decorations: Choose reusable decorations like wooden or fabric Easter bunnies, chicks, and eggs that you can use year after year, rather than disposable ones made of plastic or paper. We love the handmade bunny garland from Rusted Anchor by Kathy for a festive addition to a reusable decoration collection.

DIY Crafts: Get creative with DIY Easter crafts using recycled materials like cardboard, paper scraps, and fabric remnants. You can make your own Easter cards, garlands, and decorations while reducing waste. Here's a fun tutorial for making recycled mosaic eggs from items you may already have around the house. 

Eco-Friendly Easter Baskets: Instead of buying traditional plastic Easter baskets, consider using baskets made from sustainable materials like bamboo, rattan, or recycled paper. You can also repurpose containers like jars, buckets, or woven bags for a unique and eco-friendly alternative. Check out our blog article dedicated to eco-friendly easter baskets, how to source them and what to stuff in them! 

Choose Sustainable Treats: Look for Easter chocolates and candies that are sustainably sourced, organic, and fair trade certified. You can also opt for homemade treats or non-food items like seeds, stickers, or small toys to fill Easter eggs. Our personal favorite chocolate is Tony's Chocolonely - they even make cute little eggs for Easter! They are dedicated to making all of their chocolate 100% exploitation free. 


Give Sustainable Gifts: Instead of traditional Easter gifts, consider giving experiences like a family hike, picnic, or gardening day. You can also gift sustainable items like reusable water bottles, tote bags, or beeswax wraps. We love a good water bottle like these screw top Hydroflasks


This Easter, let's celebrate not only the joys of the season but also our commitment to protecting the planet for future generations. By incorporating these eco-friendly Easter tips into our traditions and festivities, we can make a meaningful difference in reducing waste and promoting sustainability. Whether it's dyeing eggs with natural colors, opting for reusable decorations, or choosing sustainable treats, every small change adds up to a brighter, greener future. Let's continue to spread awareness, inspire others, and embrace a lifestyle of mindful consumption and environmental stewardship. Together, we can make every Easter a celebration of love, gratitude, and respect for the Earth. Happy eco-friendly Easter!
