Unpackaged has got some great Easter Ideas

Today I received a newsletter from Unpackaged, a wonderful shop in London which would be worth a visit if you are in the area.

To reduce on packaging Catherine suggests the following:

Easter Eggs
A lovely selection of Montezuma’s Giant Organic Easter Eggs in three varieties: dark, milk and white chocolate, wrapped in just a very thin film. The wrapper is made from corn based starch that is sustainable and annually renewable and the Tag is made from sustainable box board certified by the FSC and printed with vegetable inks and a water based emulsion. They’ll probably go quite fast so do email if you would like us to reserve you one - £9.99 each [please state which type].

Papier Maché Eggs
For those who would rather make their own, there is a recipe here for making a papier maché egg [third recipe down]. So, make and decorate your own egg and bring it in to fill with our lovely selection of organic loose goodies: Montezuma truffles [dark chocolate and vanilla or salted caramel], chocolate buttons, fudge, sweets and/ or the odd healthy nut! If you bring your homemade egg [or a picture of it on your phone!], we’ll give you 10% off whatever you want to fill it with!

We also have wonderful Easter biscuits from the Lavender Bakery – chocolate and vanilla bunnies, eggs and chicks which you can also decorate at home.

Best wishes,Catherine
