Sustainable Easter Options
It has been a beat since our last post. 2020 is off to a weird start (or weird four months) and you all know what I mean.
Now we find ourselves facing our first big holiday while trapped in quarantine. Many of us have children that still need sunshine brought to them via the Easter Bunny.
Two Downtown SLO shops can assist the Bunny with his difficult Easter adventure.
HumanKind Fair Trade and EcoBambino have both stocked up on goodies to fill your little's Easter basket.
HumanKind is selling items a la carte, encouraging patrons to mix and match to make their perfect basket. Some of the HKFT spring holiday items include beautiful and intricately made quilled eggs (ideal for decorating or egg hunting), crocheted bunnies, an array of different sized baskets, and of course delicious fair trade chocolate.
Items seem to be selling fast, so if you do not see what you are looking for on the "Easter" link, call the store on Monday/Wednesday/Friday to inquire about particular items.
EcoBambino is striving to take the stress away from every parent. Quarantining with children can be exhausting and Easter should not be an added stresser. The staff at EcoBambino have put together a range of Easter baskets to appeal to any child.
The "Baby's First Easter Basket" includes such items as teething rings, a bonnet, a soft bunny, and baby balm.
There are "little girl" and "little boy" baskets that include nail polish, a Go Fish card game, art supplies, and small toys. All baskets are included in the price of the package. EcoBambino pre-prepared Easter baskets range in price from $50-$150--well worth the splurge for thoughtfully curated content and eco-friendly products.
SLO has made a lot of sacrifices to flatten the curve of this pandemic. As we approach this holiday, let's remember to support our local businesses and help them thrive when their doors are otherwise closed.
