Environmental Symbolism Of Easter

Easter Day is just around the corner and, with it, a wonderful time of the year for family, fun, and festivity! But before we get there, bunnies and eggs aside, it’s important to reflect on the significance of the holiday, not only for its religious meaning but also for the message it portrays about stewardship

It’s a time of giving and selflessness, a reminder that we can always start anew. As we prepare to celebrate the day, it’s only fair that we reflect on how we can apply this concept to our planet, as we’re entrusted as a species to take care of it and to give back to the environment. I mean, it’s been our home for millions of years! 

If we put ourselves in the position of stewards of the Earth, our goals end up aligning with the reality we’re facing. At the end of the day, if we want a healthier future, it’s our responsibility to take care of the planet in a way that preserves it for the coming generations!

Having this in mind, we’re going to provide you with some essential tips to celebrate in the most environmentally friendly way:

  • Go for eco-friendly Easter baskets made from sustainable materials like bamboo or reusable fabric bags. Avoid plastic baskets that contribute to landfills due to their unrecyclable materials;

  • Use natural dyes for your Easter eggs instead of artificially colored ones. You can use fruits, vegetables, and spices to create beautiful, non-toxic colors!

  • Compost those eggshells if you’re using real ones, they contain too many nutrients to miss out on!

  • Have a sustainable feast featuring locally sourced and organic food. Why not pay a visit to your local farmers' market and support your local community?

  • Choose Organic or Fair-Trade Chocolate - luckily, there are numerous brands that are committed to producing sustainable chocolate products, so it’s vital to opt for a Fair Trade Certified brand;

By incorporating eco-friendly practices into our celebrations, we can enjoy the holiday while caring for the planet! Most importantly, by keeping the fight alive we’re being a live example to our friends and family on making a difference toward a sustainable future

Have a hoppy Easter!

We’ll see you next week!
