Hop to environmentally-friendly ideas for Easter baskets
Processed wicker baskets make for a pretty presentation, but isn't very good for the environment. Scoop up handmade wooden baskets, give old baskets a new coat of paint, or sew fabric baskets that can be used for years to come. You can even opt for containers that can serve up Easter goodies and then provide other uses year round, such as a sand pail or fabric storage basket, to get more mileage from your Easter basket.
Fill with eco-friendly Easter basket grass
Shred colorful paper headed for the recycle box for a festive, green alternative to traditional plastic Easter basket grass. You can also line your baskets with gifts that follow a theme, such as rolled-up washcloths for a newborn Easter basket or vibrant socks for your little princess. Or, fill with real grass and marvel in the results.
Indulge in organic Easter candy
Easter wouldn't be the same without chocolate, so treat your family with organic chocolate bunnies, truffles, and other sweet treats. Vegan jelly beans and Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks make yummy Easter basket surprises as well.
