Easter is a time of renewal and celebration, but it can also be an opportunity to show your commitment to the environment. With some simple changes, you can have an eco-friendly Easter that everyone can enjoy.
In this blog, we’ll discuss some simple tips to help you celebrate Easter and make the most of Spring in an environmentally friendly way. From choosing reusable decorations to making use of increased solar energy for your festivities, we’ll explore all the ways you can make this Easter the greenest one yet!
It’s a great time to get solar panels
Easter always falls at the start of spring, and spring is a fantastic time for solar energy as it marks the beginning of the solar bell, the time of year when most solar energy is produced thanks to increased sunlight. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly eastern, why not be as eco-friendly as you can all year round and install solar panels in your home?
Whether you need to boil some eggs ready to decorate them or you want to watch an Easter film, you can do so in a super eco-friendly way by using solar panels in your home. Find solar panels in your area today by searching Google: for example, search ‘Cambridge solar panels’, and you’ll find trusted installers near you.
An eco-friendly egg hunt
One of the most traditional Easter activities is enjoying an egg hunt, and you can make this exciting tradition less wasteful with a quick and easy change. Consider hiding little wooden eggs or homemade reusable muslin sacks as an alternative to hiding plastic eggs or actual eggs that won’t be eaten.
If using plastic eggs is necessary, keep them in a secure location so you can use them year after year without having to buy new ones.
Make a reusable easter basket this year
Make your own Easter basket this year and use it every year instead of purchasing a cheap plastic basket from the shop every time Easter rolls around. You can use renewable and eco-friendly materials that will last. You can even re-use any old material or decorations that you were considering getting rid of and use them to create an Easter basket or bonnet that you’ll be excited to get out and put your eggs in every year.
Use natural dye for decorating eggs
Egg dyeing is one of the most treasured Easter traditions. Nevertheless, a lot of commercial dyes include a lot of chemicals that can contaminate freshwater habitats and leak into natural streams. Try using natural colours made from kitchen staples like fruits and vegetables instead.
Avoid wasteful packaging
Easter is and never will be complete without a chocolate easter egg, but they are known to come with a lot of unnecessary packaging. This year, why not avoid products and eggs that are extremely packaged and opt for a minimally packaged alternative instead? There are some brands out there making eco-friendly packaged chocolate eggs this year. Better yet, you could even make your own.
