As springtime approaches, Easter brings with it a sense of renewal and joy. However, amidst the festivities of egg hunts and family gatherings, it's important to remember our responsibility towards the planet. Embracing sustainability doesn't mean sacrificing fun; in fact, it can enhance the joy of celebration while leaving a lighter footprint on the Earth. Here are seven eco-friendly tips for a sustainable Easter celebration:

Eco-Conscious Egg Hunts: Instead of using plastic eggs that end up in landfills, opt for biodegradable alternatives made from materials like recycled paper or plant-based plastics. You can also organize a "nature hunt" where children search for items like pinecones, leaves, or stones, promoting a deeper connection with the environment.

DIY Decorations: Get creative with homemade decorations using recycled materials. Craft Easter wreaths from branches and flowers found in your garden, or make bunting from fabric scraps. Encourage children to join in by creating their own decorations from recycled paper or cardboard.

Sustainable Food Choices: Plan a menu featuring locally sourced and organic ingredients. Opt for plant-based dishes or incorporate more vegetarian options into your Easter feast. Reduce food waste by planning portions carefully and composting any leftovers.

Natural Dyeing: Ditch artificial dyes and opt for natural alternatives to color Easter eggs. Experiment with ingredients like beetroot, turmeric, spinach, and blueberries to create a rainbow of hues. Not only is this method eco-friendly, but it also adds a unique touch to your Easter eggs.

Gifts with Purpose: Instead of traditional Easter baskets filled with disposable toys and candies, consider giving gifts that promote sustainability. Choose items such as reusable water bottles, eco-friendly crafts kits, or seeds for planting a garden. These gifts not only bring joy but also encourage sustainable habits.

Mindful Gift Wrapping: Wrap gifts using sustainable materials like recycled paper, fabric scraps, or newspaper. Get creative with natural embellishments such as twine, dried flowers, or leaves. Encourage recipients to reuse or recycle the wrapping materials to minimize waste.

Outdoor Celebrations: Take advantage of the spring weather by hosting your Easter celebration outdoors. Picnics in the park or garden parties not only reduce energy consumption by forgoing indoor lighting and heating but also provide an opportunity to connect with nature.

By incorporating these eco-friendly practices into your Easter celebration, you can enjoy the festivities while making a positive impact on the planet. Remember, small changes can lead to significant results when it comes to sustainability. Let's celebrate Easter in a way that honors both tradition and the environment, ensuring a brighter future for generations to come.

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
