This was probably about 700 egg cartons, collected at the Coon Rapids Recycling Center for reuse by Sunshine Harvest Farm. Since I go to both Coon Rapids and the Kingfield Farmers Market, where Sunshine Harvest Farm has a booth, I serve as the Deliverer of the Egg Cartons. Works out well for everyone!
You could try doing the same thing at a farmers market you frequent -- ask whether a farm that sells eggs would like to reuse egg cartons, then collect them from your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. Great way to reuse, and reduce waste, not to mention save money because I'm told those cartons aren't that cheap. Sunshine Harvest Farm has saved hundreds of dollars by reusing the cartons.
