So, of course, our signature yellow and blue cartons are environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable (labels included). 

We were inspired by one of our Yolk Cult members to test our green thumb and repurpose our cartons in the garden. Wanna join? Here’s the 4-1-1 on growing seedlings in a Happy Egg Carton…

What you’ll need:

  • Happy Egg Carton

  • Pair of Scissors

  • Garden Soil

  • Water

  • Seeds (gardener’s choice!)

  • Large pot or outdoor area to move them to as they grow

Here's what to do: 

  • Step 1: Cut the lid off of your carton (easy enough, right?).

  • Step 2: Fill each egg cup with soil and poke a hole in the center.

  • Step 3: Place one seed in each hole, and cover with soil.

  • Step 4: Water according to directions, and keep in a light-filled room. Once you see seedlings, they’ll be ready to upgrade their space!

  • Step 5: Cut the egg cups apart.

  • Step 6: Create shallow holes in your larger pot or garden, and place each egg cup in one (still with us?).

  • Step 7: Cover with more soil– just be sure you don’t lose sight of the seedling. And because we know you’re thinking it: yes, you can bury the egg cup! That’s on being 100% biodegradable. 

  • Step 8: Keep watering, and watch your plant babies grow.
