This year, Good Friday falls on Earth Day, April 22, a coincidence that inspired us to brainstorm ways to enjoy an eco-friendy Easter.
•Use a sand bucket as an Easter basket for the kids in your life. They'll get to re-use it this summer!
•Cook up easy, natural dyes for Easter eggs: colorful foods and spices like carrots, blueberries, paprika and coffee, boiled in water and then strained. Here's the scoop on how to make natural Easter egg dyes.
•Re-connect with your spiritual side by hiking, taking a family walk or cleaning up your neighborhood or local park. To make the holiday special, have a tree planted in the Holy Land in honor or in memory of someone special.
•Get energized for the holiday weekend with free coffee or tea at Starbucks on Friday; just bring your own travel mug.
•Make your "holiday best" an outfit made with ramie or organic fiber, accessorized with recycled jewelry. Find some gorgeously green fashion finds here.
