An egg carton (also known as an egg box in British English) is a carton designed for carrying and transporting whole eggs.
These cartons have a dimpled form in which each dimple accommodates an individual egg.
This structure helps protect eggs against stresses exerted during transportation and storage
It does this by absorbing a lot of shock and limiting the incidents of fracture to the fragile egg shells.
An egg carton can be made of various materials, including;
- foamed plastics such as polystyrene foam
- clear plastic
- being manufactured from recycled paper
- molded pulp by means of a mechanized papier-mâché process. (source)
