How To Have An Eco-Easter
Easter is one of our favourite holidays of the year. Whether it’s joining your loved ones for a moment of reflection and gratitude, or simply cherishing the time with your nearest and dearest, we welcome the week with open arms each year. But I do know that even in our lifetimes we have seen the over-commercialisation of the Easter holiday; plastic-wrapped junk food disguised as gifts, extravagant holidays away… And it’s all well-intended, but many people often lose sight of the true meaning of the week. So this year, we’re encouraging our wonderful FreshBox community to spend the long weekend a little more mindfully, and here is our definitive list of how to have an eco-Easter.
Paint Easter Eggs
As a child, one of my most cherished Easter memories was all of the arts and crafts we did together as a family - especially painting our own eggs. It’s such a good way to make sure that we’re limiting the endless foil going to waste, as well as a fun activity for all when home from school or the office. Here’s the easiest way to do it (plus, you can always scramble the insides for breakfast too).
Enjoy A Treat for the Adults
Sometimes it feels like holidays can be all about the kids and sure, it’s always such a joy, but every now and then us adults need to be able to put our feet up and relax too. With a long weekend at our feet and the last of the summer heat, what better way to enjoy it than with a glass of organic Australian wine? For those looking for something extra, we’ve curated our much-loved Wine Boxes for when the sun goes down and the kids head to bed...
Organise a Nature-Based Scavenger Hunt
Many of us fondly remember the Easter egg hunts, mornings spent with our siblings desperately searching for those tiny Cadbury eggs. If you’re searching for a healthier, more eco-conscious alternative, why not try a scavenger hunt instead, with just one, good-quality Easter treat at the end? The clues can take inspiration from traditional holiday symbols (think chickens, bunny burrows, hidden in baskets), but embody a more holistic message within the day.
Pick Your Hot Cross Buns Wisely
At the end of the day, who can resist a Hot Cross Bun at this time of year? And truth be told, you shouldn’t have to either. Thankfully, this year we’ve managed to get our hands on some of the best-tasting Hot Cross Buns around, they’re organic, delicious and nourishing in every way (we’ve even got gluten-free ones too). We love them with a generous smear of our favourite Phyto Plant-Butter, but they taste just as good with a slightly sweeter filling too ;)
Make Conscious Chocolate Choices
And finally, what’s Easter without a little chocolate… It tastes even better when it’s not packed with nasty additives and wrapped in endless plastic. That’s why we’ve sourced well-made, all-natural Easter eggs that everyone will enjoy these holidays. And if you’re not egg-inclined, why not use the occasion to stock up on some delicious chocolate anyway?
We’re all about celebrating the holidays, especially when we can do it in a mindful way. At FreshBox, we’re making it our mission to help you do the same too.
