How do plastic Easter eggs fit into a zero waste Easter?! Often times, living with zero waste means using what you already have for as long as you can 😁
I’ve had these Easter eggs for years, acquired from friends and family when my son was little. I reuse them every year to stage an Easter egg hunt for my son. Now that he’s 9 years old, he doesn’t believe in the Easter bunny anymore, but he still loves sweet surprises 😋
This year I filled the eggs with package-free candies from Bulk Barn. To collect the eggs, my son used a felt bag he received as a toddler (no fake grass necessary).
And this morning my thoughtful son surprised me with a zero waste Easter egg hunt of my own! 😲 He hid a dozen eggs around my office, filled with toys he thought I’d like, tiny creations he made, candy from his “secret” stash and a handwritten note.
I had so much fun finding and opening his little presents! 😍 We both decided this would become a new family tradition 😊
