It’s Good Friday in most of the Christian world, and this Midwestern, Catholic-raised boy’s thoughts are naturally turning to…Easter candy. What’s that you say? Bad for my waistline? Well, that’s a lost cause anyway…and besides, Easter candy is actually getting greener. Find out more in this morning’s meltingly hot green roundup:

  • I Likes My Peeps: Easter candy is here, of course — but Easter candy packaging (which usually takes up more space than the chocolate itself) is slimming down across the industry, reports Treehugger.
  • Glug Glug Glug: Finally, some really bad news: The amount of fresh water human beings are using is “moving dangerously close to the limit of safety,” reports The Economist. (Hat tip: Environmental Leader.)
