ABC News’ Yunji de Nies Reports: The White House is going green for this year’s Easter Egg Roll.  The 2010 official souvenir egg is made from Sustainability Forest Initiative certified paperboard, which uses no wood fibers from endangered forests, and will be painted purple, pink, green or yellow, with vegetable oil-based inks and a water-based coating.  The eggs will be delivered in a recyclable printed carton. Like last year, tickets to the South Lawn event are given out through and online lottery.  Children 12 years and younger lucky enough to attend will receive a souvenir egg.  Those who can’t make the festivities can buy one at www.easter.nationalparks.org  This year’s celebration will focus on health and wellness, with the theme “Ready, Set, Go!” following the First Lady’s “Let’s Move!” campaign.
