Anyone that owns chickens has probably had to deal with this from time to time:
|One of many small towers of egg cartons consuming|
the area above my refrigerator, the laundry room, and
any other place I can manage to stuff them.
On a side note.....why is it that McDonald's got all that flack years ago for having their hamburgers in styrofoam packaging, but the majority of egg cartons are still made with the stuff? I'd have to think that more eggs are sold than Big Mac's were. Or maybe not? And why are't the cardboard cartons used more? Probably more expensive?
So even though I use my fair share of egg cartons and a few leave the house when I sell or give eggs away, there is still a plethora of cartons left. I've used them in counting games with Rhiannon, for watercolor paints, storing small craft items and this time of year, starting seedlings:
|My pathetic attempt; 72 measly seed starts. But more planned.|
Soon, I hope.
