Did someone say eco friendly easter eggs?
Easter is one of those times of year to come together and make time for family and friends, make memories and (most importantly ;)) have a bit of chocolate! We don't know about you, but we'd certainly rather be Easter bunnies than gym bunnies! We like to think of balance as an egg in each hand this time of year!
Say no to single use plastic
As with many holidays we know that the festivities can often also mean a LOT of single use plastic waste and sadly more damage to our planet. So how can we help? Going for eco-friendly egg options can be a great way to make your Easter that bit better this year.
