eco eggs® Expands Product Line With Smaller-Sized Easter Eggs
Renewable Alternative to Petroleum-Based Easter Eggs Accessible to the Masses
(Minneapolis, MN) January 27, 2015 – eco eggs, an environmentally-friendly division of Maud Borup Inc., a 108-year-old candy, confections, and food gift company based in the Twin Cities, today announced the release of eco eggs in a new, smaller format to address the needs of those wanting more traditional-sized Easter eggs. The smaller eggs measure 2.25” x 1.5” and are made from the same 100% renewable, plant-based material as the larger eco eggs.
eco eggs are recognized globally as the first renewable plastic Easter eggs that can decompose in industrial compost, or can be stored and reused year after year. eco eggs are patented, made in Minnesota, and are 100% plant-based rather than using petroleum-based polymers common in Easter eggs made in China. eco eggs are non-toxic, durable, and environmentally-friendly.
“We listened to the marketplace and expanded the eco eggs product line to provide sizes and price points to meet the needs of everyone. Our goal is to offer a renewable alternative to petroleum-based Easter eggs that is accessible and affordable,” said Christine Lantinen, president of eco eggs. “By switching to eco eggs, we can each play a role in reducing our carbon footprint with an alternative that is safe for our kids and better for the planet.”
eco eggs are ideal for Easter decorating, crafts, and egg hunts. The eggs are sold in a multi-colored assortment of pink, yellow, green, blue and purple.
eco eggs can be purchased online or at specialty and mass retailers. The smaller eggs are available in a 24 count bag and in quantities of 500 at a bulk rate ideal for egg hunts. Wholesale prices are available by contacting us at 866-678-6283, x707.
