The Easter holiday is on March 31st this year. As one of the first spring holidays on the calendar, what better way to usher in springtime than by celebrating an eco-friendly Easter? Reducing and reusing are two of the main concepts in making Easter ‘greener.’ Simple ways of cutting back on plastics and packaging can include using shredded paper for Easter grass and buying candy in bulk. Reusing last year’s Easter basket and plastic eggs is another simple green idea. If Easter baskets and plastic eggs are not stored away with your other Easter decorations, thrift stores are a great place to buy new ones.
