Plastic Easter

Sometimes I just shake my head about humans. What a weird species we are! Easter is a great example. It’s a Christian holiday but somehow the Easter Bunny bounded into the ritual with the staying power of the Duracell rabbit, complete with disposable plastic eggs (um, bunnies don’t lay eggs) filled with more surgary junk food than we buy at Halloween. Cheap baskets filled with plastic confetti end up in the trash. And perhaps the worst of all, baby bunnies and chicks are bought and soon secretly abandoned to meet their fate at local parks.

Any attempts at ditching the Easter Egg Hunt are met with horror. So what we’re left with are options for reducing the environmental impact. This article mentions more ecological options for indoor and outdoor hunts.
