Almost a year ago, eggcartons.com became my very first sponsor. I must say that this company has wonderful egg cartons. They have so many beautiful non-traditional styles made from many different materials, options and colors. My favorite cartons are their vintage style ones. Somehow, when I present people with one of these cartons filled with eggs, they always ask me if I want the carton back. This always makes me smile, because I know how much they love the eggs inside but hearing this makes me realize that the packaging is equally as special.
The other part of this company that I love is that their employees are also chicken keepers. The best stories are when people who don’t keep chickens all of a sudden decide to take the plunge and start a flock of their own. This happened a few months ago to one of their employees. In the office, the co-workers decided to hatch some fertilized eggs (scroll down to the July 2. 2012 entry). With much success, they had an amazing hatch rate of 12 out of 13! Little did one employee know that she was about to fall in love. Without ever having kept chickens, she took home four. She had only a brooder; no coop, no place for her chickens but where there was a will there was a way. Amazingly, she was able to up-cycle herself a coop and with that, her flock found a new home. For the story how she made a coop for $20, click here.
And to think it all started with egg cartons.
