Plastic “Easter Grass,” Not For the Birds

With Easter Sunday coming this weekend, it’s a good time to remind those celebrating that plastic grass can be an entanglement hazard when birds incorporate it into their nests. For bird-safe fun, use paper grass or colorful sheets of tissue paper to line children’s baskets. If using the plastic version, be sure to collect any that escapes the basket, and cut it into one-inch pieces before disposing of it in the trash (or save it for next year). Every little bit we can do helps!
