Be a ‘good egg’ this Easter


Easter egg (large version)The nation’s love of sweet treats means around 3,000 tonnes of Easter egg packaging is produced in the UK each year.

We’re ‘egging’ you on to help make a difference this Easter by reducing, reusing and recycling as much of your Easter egg packaging as you can. We’re encouraging Chocolate lovers to munch their way through an egg or two and then help the environment by preventing the egg-stra cardboard and foil from ending up in the landfill.

Enjoy Easter and be an egg-cellent recycler by following these top tips:

  • When buying your Easter treats, try to choose eggs with minimal packaging or ones using more recyclable materials
  • Easter egg cardboard box – fold it and take it to your nearest household recycling centre or mini recycling bank. It can also be torn up and put in your home composting bin
  • Easter egg foil – scrunch up aluminium foil and this can be recycled at some mini recycling banks
  • Try making your own tasty Easter treats
  • Recycle any Easter cards you receive
  • Save the plastic egg shell and use it to make your own chocolate eggs next year

So, before you crack open your Easter egg and tuck into the chocolate, take a look at the packaging and try to reuse and recycle as much of the materials as you can.

Have a happy Easter!
