Austin, TX February 15th, 2011
You just finished moving and have a huge stack of cardboard boxes cluttering up the garage. What do you do with all those boxes? You don’t want to throw them away and fill up the landfill. You don’t want to store them in the garage since they take up so much room. Finally the residents of Bryan and College Station, TX have a better solution.
EcoBox the leading supplier of new and used moving and shipping supplies in Central Texas announces the first franchised location will be located in Bryan, TX. “We are planning on opening the store in the second quarter of this year depending upon the final phases of construction for the new building” explains Kim Warlick, the owner of the franchise in Bryan, TX. Kim and her husband Brandon are the new owners of the EcoBox franchise. The store will be located at 2115 W. Briargate Dr., which is between the Bryan post office on William J Bryan and the highway 6 bypass.
“We think Bryan and College Station are great cities and we look forward to helping each reuse boxes that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill. We call it reducing your Cardboard Footprint” explains Malone. EcoBox buys back used cardboard boxes from homeowners who have just completed a move and then resells the used boxes via its retail stores and ecommerce website. Used boxes typically sell for 40% less than new boxes! Any boxes that are too worn or damaged to be reused get recycled and made back into new boxes. Most of the new moving boxes sold by EcoBox are made of 100% recycled cardboard. “We really try to minimize our impact to the environment as well as the impact to your wallet by reusing boxes” explains Malone.
In addition to new & used moving boxes, EcoBox stocks a large variety of shipping materials such as biodegradable bubble wrap, biodegradable peanuts, stretch wrap, tape, and 500 other shipping supplies making EcoBox a convenient source for eBay customers, moving companies, self storage companies, and anyone else who ships, packs or moves items. “By being located near the intersection of William J Bryan Pkwy and Hwy 6, we want to be convenient for our wholesale and retail customers to stop in and purchase any items they need in any quantity. Customers can also access our website at www.ecobox.com and get free local delivery to their home or business with the required minimum order. Boxes delivered to your doorstep. We want to be convenient, economical, and ecological”, explains Kim Warlick.
EcoBox has multiple company owned stores operating in Austin, Round Rock, San Antonio, TX and soon to be the newest location in Bryan, TX. From bike boxes to guitar boxes and 500 other sized boxes, EcoBox truly does live up to their motto of “Moving or Shipping? We have a box for that!”
