Sustainable Tips on How to Spend an Environmentally Friendly Easter

Getting creative during any holiday ensures tons of fun while getting together with friends or family. Organising feasts, planning a party or coming up with entertaining ideas for activities are all important when enjoying a holiday like Easter for example. 

Easter might not be the biggest holiday of the year but it certainly offers a chance to take a small break before summer gets here. Informed consumers, now more than ever, are interested in ways to celebrate holidays like Easter in a sustainable manner. In this article, we are sharing a few basic tips on how to spend a more environmentally friendly Easter. 

Circular Economy Easter

Having fun during the festivities is absolutely time well spent but it’s also good to focus on a circular economy approach. A lot of products, food items, and especially various packaging are a part of any holiday and they tend to pile up when all is said and done. 

Recycle and reuse

Should your Easter involve a lot of packaging and/or gift wraps, then consider recycling as much as possible. Also, store leftover reusable wrapping material or packaging material for later use if possible. Sort as much as you can and make sure that your Easter egg hunt won’t leave behind a trail of waste in nature or elsewhere. 

Focus less on single-use 

It certainly is no wonder why many people are accustomed to single-use culture because there is a lot of it. Again, recycling and reusing is crucial when talking about sustainability and lessening single-use fossil-based plastic items.

Avoid food waste 

Every holiday includes a good amount of grub for all parties involved. Family members munching delicious meals throughout the festivities is a good sight because it tends to mean that there won’t be any food waste. 

Wasting food is a key issue that luckily has been gaining awareness among consumers but unfortunately, a lot of tasty things still go to waste. Avoiding food waste is probably the easiest way to spend a sustainable Easter. Although it’s wise to not prepare too much food, then again, all that needs to be done is to eat it! 

Food waste is a global problem

It might not seem like a big deal to throw away your leftovers and continue your holiday but in reality, the problems with food waste are very real. Approximately one-third of the world’s food ends up as waste. 

To the surprise of many, a whopping 61% of food waste comes from households. This number can be decreased and there is no better time to start than now.
