RE: Eggshells



This strikes me as something of a packaging issue.  Some manufacturers have 
been successful at getting suppliers to take back the packaging.  For 
example, GM requires suppliers to take back their pallets and reduce
packaging.  So why not send the eggshells back to the chickens--as feed  
supplement.  Chickens, as you might imagine, require a lot of calcium to  
keep cranking out eggs.  Naturally, to prevent the spread of disease    
among the chickens, you'll want to sterilize the shells.
