1. Instead of using synthetic egg dyes, try using natural ingredients such as beetroot, turmeric, and blueberries to dye your Easter eggs. Cicely Rae has some great recipes, click here 

2. Choose organic and locally sourced food: Opt for organic and locally sourced food when preparing your Easter feast, which supports local farmers and reduces carbon emissions from transportation.

3. Reduce food waste: Plan your Easter meal carefully to avoid food waste, and compost any scraps or leftovers.

4. Host an outdoor Easter egg hunt: Take advantage of the spring weather by hosting an outdoor Easter egg hunt, which reduces the need for energy-intensive indoor activities. Check out the National Trust outdoor Easter Egg Hunts here.

5. Upcycle Easter decorations: Instead of buying new Easter decorations every year, consider upcycling items such as glass jars, old newspapers, and fabric scraps.

6. Make your own Easter gifts: Get crafty and make your own Easter gifts instead of buying new items. You could create homemade cards, knit Easter egg cosies, or bake Easter treats.

7. Choose eco-friendly Easter baskets: Instead of using plastic Easter baskets, choose eco-friendly options such as baskets made from sustainable materials or reusable tote bags. Click here to make your own Easter Bunny treat bag!

8. Shop from sustainable brands: Support sustainable brands that prioritize ethical and eco-friendly practices when purchasing Easter treats and gifts. Perhaps a pair of recycled socks?

9. Use reusable tableware: Avoid disposable plates and cutlery by using reusable dishes and silverware. If you do need to use disposable items, choose ones that are compostable or made from sustainable materials

10. Travel sustainably: If you're travelling for Easter, consider taking public transportation or carpooling to reduce your carbon footprint.
