How to Make an Eco-Friendly Easter Basket

Springtime has many of us running out to buy candy and toys to fill our children's Easter baskets. At Hazel Baby, we decided to put together an eco-friendly Easter Basket that is both chic, and tons of fun for your little one!

Springtime has many of us running out to buy candy and toys to fill our children's Easter baskets. At Hazel Baby, we decided to put together an eco-friendly Easter Basket that is both chic, and tons of fun for your little one!

The "Basket"

Instead of using a traditional basket, how about trade up for something your child will reuse over and over again? Easter baskets seem to get used once a year, and then either take up too much space in the closet, or get thrown away. This year, fill up a fun colorful reusable snack bag or backpack! We LOVE the new Spring designs from STATE and they work for every age.

The Trimmings

Traditional petroleum-based Easter grass generates tons of emission and landfill waste each year. eco grass is made from 100% post recycled paper. It is 100% recyclable after use! It can be kept and reused for many Easters or after use, you can dispose of eco grass in your paper recycle bin. Comes in pink, green, or yellow.

Want to put on a hunt in the house? Or sprinkle some faux eggs in their spring backpack? We love putting stickers in ours for a fun and simple surprise! 

Candy is a must-have in any proper Easter celebration, but it doesn't always have to be unhealthy or processed. These Eggs already have Black Forest Organic Gummy Bears inside! They are made with thoughtful ingredients like lemon juice, organic cane sugar, potato starch, carrot and beet juice. USDA Certified Organic. Gluten Free.

That Special Toy!

Every little kid needs a new bunny to snuggle for Easter and this design is both chic and lovable. Hazel Village animals are all made from organic cotton, and feature real doll clothes that are fun for your little one to dress up and down for the occasion.
 
 
Get in the race car with this fast rabbit! This vehicle comes with a vintage race car theme and features a turning wheel that gives the same movement as a real race car when turning around.
 
A wooden bunny rattle and the bunny rabbit "Pierre" board book are the perfect combination for a beautiful baby gift to celebrate Springtime. Great for newborn to 1 year!
 
        
 

All-natural egg dye kit that keeps your eggs safe to eat! And it now has a little grass-making patch to display the your egg artwork! GREAT for future botanists and science lovers. eco-eggs coloring dyes are made with natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, curcumin, purple sweet potato and red cabbage. We'd recommend it for ages 4 and up.

 
The Easter Bunny's vegetable garden is great for teaching children to care about the earth as it is both beautiful and nourishing. It's a total hit with toddlers! We love it for ages 2+
 
Voila! Put it all together and you've got one adorable and environmentally-friendly Easter 'Basket'!
