That's really interesting about the eggcartons, I've used them a couple of times when shipping vintage to the USA. And I've never even thought about the boxes I've reused when shipping to Australia...luckily they were always for packaged candy or cosmetics never any produce or meat boxes (both types usually have holes in them so I don't tend to pick them up). I'll be sure to add my packing materials to my contents on my next Australian order.
