Bunny time.

Filling Easter baskets or planning an Easter egg hunt and dreading the combo of chemicals, coloring and waste? A wholesale chocolate company has released eco eggs ($30/case of 72, ecoeggs.com), compostable plastic Easter eggs made in the U.S.A. from nontoxic corn starch that can be either saved for next year or composted. And instead of food dye-laden traditional jellybeans, fill those eggs with organic jellybeans from Surf Sweets ($4.49/8oz.bag, surf sweets.com) that come in flavors berry, pineapple, tangerine and watermelon. Made with organic fruit juice and sweeteners--without corn syrup--they actually taste like real fruit. And round out baskets with chocolate goodies like Dark Chocolate with Deep Forest Mint Treats from Endangered Species Chocolate ($44.99/160 pieces, chocolatebar.com)--individually wrapped chocolate squares made with 72% cocoa content that are certified gluten-free, vegan, kosher and contribute to species and habitat conservation efforts.
