1 out of 5 Americans move every year which involves a whole lot of moving boxes. Most individuals don’t recycle the boxes or save the the bubble wrap for repeat use, leaving most cardboard boxes to be sent to a landfill after only being used once.
There is a cheaper and much more efficient alternative that provides zero-waste packaging. The inventor, Spencer Brown, created EarthFriendlyMoving which rents a container called the RecoPack which is made from recycled hard plastic bottles retrieved from landfills, such as bleach and household cleaning containers. Each RecoPack is made from 74 plastic bottles ground into a millions of little pieces. The company reports that for every 100 RecoPack containers they make, they are moving an average of 256 pounds of trash from landfills.
Customers save approximately 50% by using these boxes as they only cost a buck a week to rent! Best of all, EarthFriendlyMoving will deliver the boxes to you - you pack your boxes, you move, then give them a call to pick them up. So easy! Just concentrate on the move itself! (That alone is stressful)
