The Bite

When Peter Cottontail comes hopping down the bunny trail, surprise him with a basket of organic eggs dyed in gorgeous, eco-friendly colors.

The Benefits

  • Most egg dye kits are labeled as non-toxic, but even some food-grade, FDA-approved dyes are made from coal tar and other petroleum products, so they’re not necessarily eco-friendly. Look for plant-based dyes instead.
  • Skip the fizzy tablets and make all-natural dyes from common foods: spinach (green), red onion skins (violet), orange peel (yellow), red cabbage (blue…no really!) and beets (pink). Don’t forget to buy organic and compost everything when you’re done.
  • Skip petroleum-based plastic grass, or reuse it. Sprouted wheat grass and raffia are good all-natural alternatives.
  • Make it chocolate. Resist the temptation to buy live rabbits, ducklings or chicks as gifts. Though cute and fuzzy, they’re not kid-friendly pets, and many thousands are abandoned each spring.

Personally Speaking

We’re thinking that red wine would probably achieve the perfect purple Easter egg. One sip for you little egg, two for us…
