When you hear the question, paper or plastic, what do you think of? I personally think of grocery bags. However, Easter grass also has the option of paper or plastic.
On the other hand, have you ever thought about what happens to all the Easter grass? Some people keep the grass and reuse it again the next Easter. On the other hand, can you imagine the amount of Easter grass that has piled up in landfills over the years?
Luckily for Mother Earth, companies are beginning to create biodegradable Easter grass. According to several websites, it appears this biodegradable grass is relatively inexpensive and will only set you back a couple of bucks. For example, amazon.com has Biodegradable Easter Basket Grass sold by Century Novelty that is only $1.95.
If you are feeling creative, a fun Easter project could be to make your own Easter grass. All you would have to do is shred or cut up some paper you have lying around the house. It may not be as pretty; however, it would save you a little money and it can easily be recycled.
I know this Easter has already come and gone. Just keep biodegradable Easter grass in mind next year or shred some paper and make your own.
What kind of Easter grass did you use in your baskets this year?
