No more cardboard moving boxes! Use FROGBOX

Sometimes I come across something so original yet it should have been a *duh* thing and I am glad some people in our world have great initiative and go out on a limb to provide a new service or product because they truly believe it’s the right thing to do – and that it will work.

So props to FROGBOX, something I tripped over while cruising around the web today reading articles coming across my Twitter feed.

The really cool things about FROGBOX:
1) Each FROGBOX will be reused hundreds of times during it’s lifespan
2) Even if cardboard is recycled, the Environmental Protection Agency has stated that Reuse is a much better alternative than recycling because the product does not need to be reprocessed before it can be used again
3) Reusable plastic box requires 39% less energy than a comparable cardboard box to produce
4) They use waste stream bio-diesel fuel, which significantly lowers their emissions. Waste stream bio-diesel does not compete with the food industry –it comes from recycled waste oils and waste cooking oils from restaurants.
5) They use solar energy to power our website.
6) They donate money and their services to local environmental charities

I think this service is a great idea and I definitely will use their services next time I move! I will also recommend them to my friends and neighbors, and my real estate clients!

You can book your FROGBOX order online and save $10!
