I'm Dreaming of a Green Easter

For their first few years, the Easter Bunny brought my kids buckets, plastic wheelbarrows, and such filled with goodies. Then one year he brought them each a nice wooden basket. We decided to keep these baskets instead of letting the Bunny deliver a new container each year. We shredded used paper and filled them up the night before Easter morning so the Bunny simply added the goodies. They are a permanent holiday feature like Christmas stockings. Using them is also kinda green. We thought it was a sweet tradition but it also happens to keep cheap baskets out of landfills.

Wow! We do the same thing at my house, but I never considered how "green" it was; I was just tired of adding more baskets to the growing collection in my basement. :)
