When most people are planning a move, one of the last things to find its way onto the list is which type of moving boxes to use. Considering they’re going to carry most of your stuff, you’d think it would be one of the first things considered, but people do tend to take them for granted.
It’s nice to have boxes of uniform size and of suitable strength, but buying new boxes from a reputable moving place can get pretty expensive. One alternative is to use recycled moving boxes for your move. Here are 7 reasons why you should give them a try:
1) Saves Money
Using recycled boxes for moving is ultimately going to save you money. Since they have been used before, you won’t have to pay as much as you would for a brand new, unused box of the same size.
2) Reduces Waste
One issue with using new boxes each time someone moves is they are often discarded and end up in a landfill or taking up space somewhere else they don’t need to be. By re-using boxes more than once, you’ll be reducing unnecessary waste.
3) Saves Energy
Recycling boxes means that fewer new boxes need to be made to accomplish the same amount of work. If new boxes aren’t being made then the energy that would have been used up making them doesn’t have to be used at all!
4) Saves Trees
You don’t have to be an expert to figure out that another environmental benefit of fewer boxes being made is fewer trees being cut down. Even if new boxes are being made from recycled paper, it doesn’t completely spare all trees from being used in the process. Re-using boxes is an eco-friendly option.
5) Can Make You Money
If you use Ecobox for your moving boxes, you can sell them back to us when you’re done. This helps continue the process and continue the benefits for both our customers and the environment.
6) Just as Effective
One reason that some people are reluctant to use recycled moving boxes is because they feel the boxes won’t be as strong as a new one. This simply isn’t true. The boxes we sell are just as effective as a new one and will do the job for you just as well.
7) Peace of Mind
If you’re the type to feel that little twinge of anxiety about using paper products like boxes because of the environmental effect, you can rest easy when you use boxes from EcoBox. Peace of mind is always a wonderful thing to have, and knowing your moving boxes were used before you and will probably be used again will give you all the peace of mind you need.
