Eggshell as seedling containers

To make deeper containers, crack the eggs on the pointy end (rather than in the middle), rinse the shells, fill with quality seedling mix and sow your seeds. Keep the soil moist but not wet. When your seedlings are ready, crack a hole in the bottom of each egg shell to expose the roots and pop your plants into your garden.—@simplylivingourlife

They’ve even made it easy for individuals to share social media posts about different companies or to send them a message about their actions. Included are seven practical ways you can become a more ethical shopper.—Baptist World Aid
