Reusable Boxes vs Disposable Boxes
Do you want to move like this?
Cardboard boxes are a hassle. Assembling and taping is frustrating and takes time.
Make sure not to put anything heavy on them or let them get wet.
When you're done, you'll need to break them down with a knife or scissors.
And then you have to throw them away. "Away" is either a landfill, an incinerator or an energy-intensive and water-intensive sorting, pulping and re-manufacturing process.
Reusable plastic boxes are already assembled with built-in handles and durable, attached lids. And no tape is required.
They stack quickly on trucks, saving you time and money.
When you're done, Box Save picks them up, cleans them and rents them out again.

Producing 1 ton of cardboard uses 42,000 kilowatts of energy. Recycling cardboard takes 75% of the energy needed to make new cardboard.
