Avoiding plastic seems to be particularly challenging around Easter time. There are the plastic eggs, the plastic Easter grass and of course, those hideous plastic Easter baskets. Since I am decidedly anti-plastic, I have been on the lookout for the perfect (non-plastic) Easter basket this year and I think I’ve found it – The Bolga Basket from Go Natural Baby. Hand woven in the town of Bolgatanga, Ghana in West Africa, these brightly colored, fair-trade Easter baskets are each handmade of straw by a local artisan weaver and colored with natural plant extracts. Each basket is a unique work of art and only a very limited quantity are available. You might also like their traditional gathering baskets, which are also fair-trade, handmade, 100% plastic-free and guaranteed to serve you long after the Easter egg hunts are over.
Find It Here: Go Natural Baby
