Recycle All Egg Cartons

I keep all the containers eggs come packaged in. You can use them to place eggs in from your local farmer's market. If you don't buy your eggs there, you can take your containers, and donate them to the vendors.

Many eggs come in foam containers and they do not break down like cardboard ones in the land fill. But cardboard of all types can be recycled as well in many ways. We should all try to keep as much out of the landfills and recycle as much as possible.


If you don't craft, I'm sure you know someone who does or you can save your items and post on freecycle. Don't be timid about placing recycle ads because all types of items are placed there for re-use.

Please Go Green everybody. Our kids and grand kids futures depend on it!
