    There are a LOT of on-line places.. and I am Sure there HAS to be local places to get them..

    but I need them to be Un-printed, un-used (local law) and relatively cheap (and quickly!) I have over 8 dozen eggs now-- and get 18-26 a DAY!
    Ive found a food Bank and Womens shelter to donate to, but no cartons for the eggs!

    Where do YOU get Yours/ Where do you think you get the best deals???

    I am In N.W. Michigan Near Muskegon/Ludington... but if able to purchase by mail, anywhere will do!

    Thanks all!

    they need to be unprinted to donate to a food bank?...what about using flats and the food bank can worry about how to divide them if they choose to recycle cartons

    Check out the BYC sponsors - banner in upper right corner. There's an egg carton vendor among them.

    Here in our county (State too maybe??)
    You can NOT re-use egg cartons or use cartons that have the USDA stamp or "Grade A' on it.. most pre-printed ones do...

    I had been looking at eggcartons.com (from the link) and if I get 100 at a time, they'll last me a month for around $35 + Shipping... was hoping to find them a little cheaper (due to shipping)

    I'll ask at some of the feed stores tho-- the ones that I have used in the past are "misprints" from someone elses egg business, and I don't want to do their advertising--- or have people think MY eggs are from there!
    They have 100's of caged egg-layers that then end-up processed after a year of non-ending egg-laying monotony...
    NOT an image I want connected to my girls!
