Have you ever bought eggs from the cooler in the store and by the time you get home they are sweating, then you put them in the fridge and they stick to the styrofoam carton? Well, when you get home take them out of the styrofoam and put them in a cardboard egg carton that you have saved. The cardboard egg carton won't have the sticking problem.
Luckily styrofoam egg cartons haven't made it to Australia, (?my part of Australia antway), yet. If they did I wouldn't buy eggs in them. Egg shells are porous. Styrofoam gives off fumes. And besides that it is a major pollutant. Take a stand! Demand your eggs in biodegradable cardboard containers or the recent hurricanes/cyclones will only be a taste of what's to come. We all contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and every little step helps. If your contribution to global warming and climate change worries you there is a lot of information on the net about what you and your family can do to help. True frugality is also conserving nature's bounty and not destroying the earth.
