Egg cartons

Choose to buy cardboard egg cartons rather than plastic or polystyrene because you can recycle cardboard egg boxes in your paper and card bin at home.

Choose to reuse

  • You can break them up egg shells and add them to your compost to provide aeration
  • Playgroups and schools can use them for craft projects
  • They can also be used as seed pots and planted straight into the ground as they are biodegradable
