eco eggs® Announces The First 100% Renewable Easter Eggs For Egg Hunts

Plastic Easter Eggs Made From plants Instead of Petroleum-based Polymers

(Minneapolis, MN) November 2, 2011 — eco eggs, an environmentally-friendly division of Maud Borup, a 104-year-old chocolate company, today announced the release of the first compostable plastic Easter eggs that can decompose in industrial compost in just weeks.

eco eggs are made in the USA and are plastic, just like traditional Easter eggs made in China, except they are made from plants instead of petroleum-based polymers, making them 100% renewable. eco eggs are non-toxic and durable so they can be stored and reused year after year.

"Easter eggs generate tons of emissions and landfill waste each year. By switching to eco eggs, we can greatly reduce our carbon footprint," adds Christine Lantinen, president of eco eggs. "Our hope is that everyone would consider using a renewable alternative that is safe for our kids and better for the planet."

eco eggs are ideal for Easter egg hunts because they are larger than most standard-sized plastic eggs, measuring 3 inches by 2.25 inches. eco eggs are large enough to hold fun-size candy or a prize. The tight snapping closure ensures eggs will not separate easily if dropped. The eggs are sold in a multi-colored assortment of pink, yellow, green, blue and purple.

Patent-pending eco eggs can be purchased online at or at retail in packages of 12, 28, and 48 eggs. In addition, eco eggs can be purchased online in quantities of 1,000 at a bulk rate. Wholesale prices are available by contacting eco eggs direct at 866-678-6283, x 702.
