This year’s White House Easter Eggs are designed with a Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move! theme, and they are joined by a new official First Dog “Bo” egg. One thing that’s not changing about the souvenirs is how they’re packaged—in gift boxes gift boxes made from paperboard certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

For the fourth year in a row, the National Park Foundation will package the official White House Easter Eggs in gift boxes made from paperboard certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. In addition to featuring the SFI-certified box, the souvenir Easter Egg is made with U.S. wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, highlighting the recognition and importance of multiple forest certification standards.
