Reuse those plastic eggs. Every year I’m sure everyone has leftover plastic eggs from all those Easter egg hunts every year. Instead of throwing them in the trash save them for next year. Just wash them really good and throw them into a storage container until the next Easter. The kids won’t know the difference (nor will they care). The kids only care about the hunt and the treasure inside anyway. Especially if there is money šŸ˜‰ AND…if you have some eggs that are mismatched in color (the bottom color is different from the top) it just makes them that much cooler.

Locally grown food comes from short distances to the market which is better for the environment. Here are some ways to save while buying organic via {Bastyr}
