We source our eggs from Juanita and Randall who run a holistic, local farm - Echo Valley Farm at Goomburra, south of Brisbane.
These eggs are laid by very happy hens that are raised on beautiful rich pasture in mobile pens so they always have fresh grass and bugs to eat. They are supplemented with top quality, locally produced organic grain.
The eggs are delivered to us every Friday so you can be guaranteed they are always fresh and straight from the farm!
Why are Echo Valley egg cartons plastic?
Juanita and Randall did a lot of research before deciding on recycled egg cartons. Their egg cartons are sourced locally from a company in Virginia, Brisbane. The egg-packs are produced from recycled PET bottles and other post-consumer PET waste.
Research shows the Carbon Footprint of R-PET egg-packs is 15% lower than that of pulp egg-packs and the Life-Cycle Energy Demand of R-PET egg-packs is 14% lower. Another advantage is being able to visibly see the eggs inside to ensure they're not broken.
Unfortunately due to food safety standards we can't reuse the egg cartons, but please ensure you recycle them yourself.
