Someone made a comment on one of my posts today. I had been talking about getting eggs without egg cartons (see post here). The whole purpose of the post, I thought, was to offer a suggestion on how we don't have to buy eggs with cartons - especially those made of petroleum products. Since then I have reverted to buying much more expensive organic eggs that come in cardboard cartons (they are better tasting and have much darker yolks - the chickens are also guaranteed to be treated better). I'd buy them with my basket if I could, but the grocery store doesn't have that option, and even if they did, they'd probably throw out the carton instead of recycling it as I would at home. Anyhow, I was offering a suggestion, and I hope inspiration, to help people think outside the box (or the egg carton). Secondary to my main intention was the comment that styrofoam egg cartons are HORRIBLE for the environment. As are any food packaging that is made of styrofoam.
The person who left the comment kind of made me angry. Here's the comment before I explain:
