I am disturbed by the trend to package eggs in plastic cartons instead of cardboard cartons. My wife and I have called Eggland's Best and made a complaint about their over packaged plastic egg cartons. We only purchased the eggs because they were the only available choice of USDA organic eggs at the market in which we shopped. I much prefer cardboard cartons that I can toss into the composter.
I realize their packaging is part of their marketing strategy and differentiates their product in the marketplace. But, for me, it is a negative differentiation. If they want to use clear packaging I believe they should at least use a compostable product. What do others think?
