‘Green’ eggs, but hold the ham


WH egg In more Easter Egg news, take a gander at the official eggs of the 2009 White House Easter Egg Roll – the 'greenest' egg ever. They're made in the U.S. from FSC-certified hardwood from sustainably managed
forests, and colored with renewable, vegetable oil-based inks. The eggs and their souvenir packaging use
31% less paperboard than the 2008 designs.  (You can buy them using the link below.)

The theme of the event this year is Let’s Go Play,
to "encourage America’s youth to lead healthy and active lives." The
White House will open the South Lawn to children age ten and under,
along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live
musical performances, storytelling and, of course, the traditional
Easter Egg Roll.

And for the first time ever, you can watch online

Many of the activities at this year’s event will be webcast live on the White
House website. These activities include the performances on the music stage,
celebrity chefs in the Kid’s Kitchen and the readings at the Storytime Stage. A
full schedule of webcast events will be updated on www.whitehouse.gov/eastereggroll
tomorrow morning. This is the first time the activities at the White House
Easter Egg Roll have been broadcast online.


  1. The White House had better be sure that all those children hunting for Easter eggs don’t tread all over the President’s new vegetable garden!

  2. I’m not sure that those eggs could be ‘greener’ than those from an actual chicken. I guess hard boiling for a crowd is not practical.
