What’s Egg in a Box?

We’re two sisters in New York who believe that the extra rice you get with Chinese food takeout can have a new life. If you’re like us, you get far too much rice with your delivery—much more than you can eat. Being a good conservator, you save it in the fridge, but it inevitably gets stale and thrown out. We got to thinking one evening that if we only added an egg to the rice, the leftovers would become a nutritious meal for a hungry person, and Egg in a Box was born.

Our idea is simple. Next time you have an extra box of rice, throw in a hard boiled egg and drop it off wherever you’d leave leftovers (replate it) — or eat it yourself. Almost everyone has extra eggs, so boil a few at a time, store them in the fridge, and the fun begins! Plus, don’t you love the name Egg in a Box? Let’s get started!

Egg in a Box is about starting conversations about conservation and about thinking creatively in the box.
