Instead of Peeps Get Veeps

Did you know that almost all conventional marshmallows are made with gelatin – an animal byproduct. If you buy Peeps, you’re supporting animal abuse and of course, they’re non-vegan. Instead try Veeps, a vegan, better marshmallow alternative. These little hand-cut Veeps are super cute in shapes of bunnies and chicks, made with all-vegan ingredients and are coated with sugar naturally colored with beta carotine. Check out more vegan Easter candy ideas!

Instead of Conventional Cotton or Live Animals Get an Organic Bunny

I hope you know that giving real animals to your child on Easter is a horrid idea. Giving conventional cotton bunnies is also not the best idea, as conventional cotton poses a greater environmental threat than organic cotton. This year go organic with a cute, handmade stuffed bunny. The bunnies at Etsy shop From the Seed are a terrific bet. Made with natural quilters cotton, a layer of organic cotton batting and stuffed with fluffy organic cotton, each bunny is totally unique and safe, even for babies.

Instead of Chocolate Get Organic Fair Trade Chocolate

It’s easy to buy huge bulk bags of conventional chocolate Easter candy just about anywhere, but it’s far from ethical to do so. Most chocolate in the world, including the chocolates made by Hershey, is made with shady child labor practices – meaning, if you go conventional, Easter may be sweet for your child, but not so sweet for young children around the world. You have better choices. Mama Ganache has a wide selection of Fair Trade, organic and even vegan chocolates to choose from this Easter.
