…At least in LA/Orange County. I’m not mpoving anytime soon, so I’m not sure why this was on my mind; maybe it was the fact that as I was coming to work this morning, I was gobsmacked at the diesel truck next to me pulling two trailers of flattened cardboard boxes. Rent A Green Box is a company that provides post-consumer recycled products that are designed to green your moving day from top to bottom. They offer everything you need, including plastic tubs (aka recopacks) in three different sizes, recycled alternatives for packing peanuts, bags and even plastic pallets. The best part – they’ll drop them off and pick them up for you in their 100% veggie-biofuel trucks. No need to buy new, beg from friends, no tape required or worries about boxes ripping or falling apart mid-move, getting soaked in something that makes recycling questionable, or having to worry about a mishmash of sizes that defy stacking!
The only question – when will someone franchise this in the PNW??? There are other services like RentACrate who serve more locations and offer more services overall (mostly for business customers), but they might take a cue from the comprehensive, top-to-bottom strategy that Rent A Green Box has taken.
