More Information

We love the idea of upcycling egg cartons. The internet is full of great sources and ideas, from creating organizers and seed starters to much loftier projects like decorative lighting. Just search "upcycle egg cartons" in your internet browser and be inspired! If you cannot put your own cartons to use, please check with local schools, scouting troops, art clubs and day care centers to see if they can use your old egg cartons.
