"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan



Green Readers remember this post about the plastic egg cartons and the lamentation about wanting the old-fashioned cardbord containers. (Thank you, Phil's Eggs)

A very nice response came from Mr. VonBargen:

Please be advised that I have forwarded your information to our marketing departments along with all the people involved in making such decisions. One of the primary reasons we chose this carton is that the plastic, is from recycled plastic bottles and also that the carton after its use is of a high quality recyclable material, there fore making recycling a matter of importance, in order to produce less plastic and use what is already available to keep our planet green.

Other reasons for the use of this carton is the additional protection that the tri-fold carton design offers as compared to a conventional carton; our experience indicates there is less breakage in the clear carton. Mostly all of the email previously received by us, regarding the carton design and use of the recycled material, has been very favorable and complementary.

We value you highly as a loyal Publix customer and hope that you will continue to favor us with your confidence by purchasing our 4-Grain Grade A Eggs.
