Easter is just around the corner and I want to share some ways to have eco-friendly Easter eggs. It can be a holiday full of waste but it doesn’t have to.
There are so many options out there for less plastic, less waste, and better ingredients. It can have a huge impact on how ec0-friendly your Easter is overall.
Many of these eco-friendly Easter egg options are also more frugal in the long run. It’s always a good thing when we can combine frugal living and eco-friendly living!
Eco-Friendly Easter Eggs
Natural Easter Egg Dye
Dye your eggs with food. Onions, red cabbage, and other food can be used to make beautiful eggs. Green Oklahoma has great tips for naturally dyeing Easter eggs. It’s amazing how many colors you can make just using food.
You can also buy a natural dye kit. There are several great options out there including Earth Paints Natural Egg Dye Kit. Whole Foods and other natural food stores usually have some natural egg dye kits available around Easter.
When using real eggs try to use local, free-range eggs. This is the better option when it comes to the environment as well as the health of the chickens.
And if it can be done safely, Easter eggs can be eaten after dyeing to help avoid food waste. Just be mindful of your dyeing method and how you store the eggs if you are going to eat them.
Decorate Easter Eggs with Washi Paper
Condo Blues shared an interesting tutorial for making washi paper eggs. They are super cute and a very interesting alternative to dyeing. You can get some really unique Easter eggs with this method.
Vegan-Friendly Easter Eggs
Are you vegan or have an egg allergy? You can get dyeable fake eggs. Not only are these a great way to dye eggs without having to cook any, they also will last year after year!
You can also get wooden eggs which could be painted or decorated with other craft supplies. And these eggs could be used as a decoration year after year.
Eco-Friendly Fillable Eggs
If you need fillable eggs, Eco Eggs are a good option. They are made from BPA-free, corn-starch-based plastic, are food grade, are fully compostable in industrial compost, are durable and reusable for many years, and they are made in the USA. I’ve seen these at Whole Foods each year as well.
