Weekly Dose of Good – Green Gifts for the Holiday(s) Host

What better month (my name is April after all) to relaunch my blog and introduce my Weekly Dose of Good posts which will be some pics, some tips and even a little Vlogging (once I figure out exactly how to do that)…on everything I love, learn about and look for that is good for you, for others and for the world.

As we celebrate Passover and Easter this weekend, you may be on your way to a gathering of family and friends and, of course, you don’t want to arrive empty handed. Here are just a few quick doses of good green gifts for your holiday hosts.

If you’re attending a seder, a bouquet of flowers (already in a vase) is a perfect and perfectly easy gift to bring….especially when it comes with a few bonus items that repurpose the vase into several other items your host can use in their home at any time. I’m just a wee bit obsessed with the vintage style mason jars that are readily available pretty much everywhere. Target has quite the array of colors and sizes – blue, green and now purple. Ball (the company) has introduced a line of easy and affordable accessories that turn your every day mason jar into tea light holders, drink containers and even water infusers.

For a different twist on the traditional Easter Basket that is eco, edible and can be recycled for continued use…I love these edible baskets from Whole Foods that you can decorate with compostable eggs from eco-eggs. You can even spruce up this basket with compostable eco-grass or Tim’s Real Easter Basket Grass. All available at Whole Foods Market. I prefer stuffing the eggs with surprise gifts like chap stick from Savannah Bee Company, as well as a little dark chocolate and other treats. The best part is you’re not using the petroleum based grass or plastic eggs that may never be properly recycled…especially if they somehow never are found in your easter egg hunt.
