Eco-friendly Easter! – Complete Report

Easter is coming up fast.  April 4 will be here soon enough.  If you celebrate this holiday, but you’re also concerned about the environment, you may be facing a dilemma.  After all, like most major holidays, Easter has been heavily commercialized, and the traditional activities require a lot of spending and create a lot of garbage, plus there seems to be an awful lot of sugar and artificial coloring around.

That’s bad news for anyone wanting to contribute less to the waste stream.  Having an Easter without these things can look difficult, if you just look at what’s available in ordinary stores.  So, what can you do to cut down your impact on the environment without telling the kids they’re going to have to give up Easter this year?  Let’s take a look at some of your options for an eco-friendly Easter celebration that’ll still be lots of fun, but won’t break the budget.
