Tips for Celebrating an Earth-Friendly Easter

Whether you observe it as a religious holiday or strictly the domain of that big white bunny, Easter is an especially appropriate time to celebrate springtime’s seasonal renewal of life and to honor the Earth we all share. Here are a few tips to make it an especially Earth-friendly party this year:

1. First, re-purpose or up-cycle containers made of natural, renewable materials to make your Easter basket rather than buying one. Fill it with natural dried grass or straw instead of plastic shreds.

2. Fill your Easter basket with candies that are made without high-fructose corn syrup or non-sustainable palm oil. Choose chocolate that’s fairly-traded and organic.

Guacamole Deviled Eggs

3. Or, skip the sugary sweets altogether and create a menagerie of Easter-themed treats and eats instead. Try Chick Egg-a-Moles (Guacamole Deviled Eggs), hummus in garden pots with fresh veggies, and roasted "chick" peas!

Spring Brunch

4. Prepare a festive Easter brunch that features local, in-season ingredients like spring greens, fresh asparagus and farm fresh eggs. Follow this template for a perfect spread.

5. Use herbs and spices to dye eggs rich, earthy hues. Discover the beauty that spice cabinet staples like turmeric, curry powder and paprika can bring to this Easter tradition with this guide to natural egg dyeing.
