Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

Tip No 7: This website was made with 100% used cardboard boxes

At least that is the claim of www.usedcardboardboxes.com which is a service across the US.  Interestingly this company attempts to buy and resell quality used, new, misprinted and overrun cardboard boxes.

I wonder if they have a service outside the US?  Also would it be ethical or useful for them to harvest cardboard boxes from freecycling groups?

  1. I have never used their service, but I’ve been in contact with them about offering Tiger Tacos, and I can tell you that they have five (5) distribution centers in the U.S. and nothing outside.

    You can see what their buying requirements are on their site, but I don’t think they can/would be able to get boxes from any service like this as I think they need consistent sizes and quality.

    I thought their “Tip/Claim” was cute and what they do is a really great thing (reusing is SO much better then recycling) and that’s why we emailed them about our tacos.

    As to freecycling boxes, what i find really exciting is what U-Haul is doing to used boxes: http://www.uhaul.com/boxexchange (we sell new tacos on Uhaul.com).
