The Easter Basket Goes Green: An Eco-Alternative

Tired of the traditional woven Easter basket? Thinking beyond Easter weekend? Why not try a unique basket that doubles as a shopper to reduce plastic bag use?

Made of heavy nylon and a sturdy aluminum frame, the Eco Basket is both lightweight and waterproof and collapses down to a 10"x10" square that fits neatly in a handbag, backpack or the trunk of a car. There are seven colours and designs to choose from, including orange dots and florals - perfect for Easter.

This basket is perfect for Easter bunny goodies and for Easter displays. After holiday Monday, you won't store it away in the cupboard until next year, you'll use it. It's ideal for returning library books (we keep one near the door and load it up for the weekly trip to the library), a picnic in the park or for holding garden tools and veg as a garden trug.

The Eco Basket is perfect for shopping your local farmers' market or the grocery store. Not only will you save on plastic bags, you'll be amazed at how many groceries you can actually fit in. More than once we've run in and buzzed around our local Safeway for a few bits then started unloading at the Express checkout, quickly realizing we've far exceeded the 12-item limit.

Handy and smart, this is one multi-use carrier you'll quickly come to love.

Visit Vancouver-based online boutique Lavish & Lime for this and more eco-friendly products.
