When I tell people I sell egg cartons for a living they usually assume that I’m an expert on farming or eggs. While I’ve learned quite a bit about both since starting at EggCartons.com, I’ve learned even more about several other unrelated industries like cricket farming, baking, precision manufacturing, and sound proofing. This is because egg cartons are not just for eggs.

Egg cartons are one of the most versatile products on the planet. They can be used for anything that requires protection or separation and much more. To give an idea of just how versatile egg cartons are, I’ve compiled a list of 50 things our customers use egg cartons for OTHER than eggs.

World Renowned Chef Alton Brown, “shared a hack about baking homemade meatballs in an empty egg carton.

Check out Season and Thymes recipe for Egg Carton Meatballs!

Use your empty egg cartons as organizers for garage items such as nuts, bolts and screws, or craft items such as buttons, threads, beads and pastels.
