Hi Folks, I'm brand new here; there has been a lot of debate in my town lately on yay or nay for backyard chickens. I happen to live right on the edge of town, so have neighbours with roosters (and I assume chickens, too!). All of this has me thinking again about one of my pet peeves - egg cartons. Several years ago, where my parents live, it was only possible to buy eggs at the store in styrofoam cartons. They weren't recyclable, of course. I tried calling the stores to let them know how much I disliked this practice, especially on their in-house brand. Things are a bit better now, but there's still so much use of the clear plastic ones, which are recyclable but require lots of energy and new inputs to do so. If I could design a perfect, reusable egg carton, what should it look like? (Warning - I might actually do this!!) Things I've identified so far: - clear, so I can see how many eggs I have - anti slip on the bottom - stackable - dishwasher safe (and food safe!) - fit size small to extra extra large, so any size from backyard chickens fits - some sort of softer lining, so that it's portable and not smashing eggs of different sizes while in transport - closes securely - has some sort of handle What do you, more knowledgeable, folks think about the whole idea? What does your ideal egg carton look like?
