A new eco-friendly moving box supply company is “moving” into Boise and will be ready to service Boise residents and businesses starting July 2011. The FrogBox Boise franchise offers a GREEN solution for those looking for moving or packing supplies.
Boise based FrogBox, rents out reusable plastic containers, in reptile green, to individuals and businesses who are packing up to move. Instead of buying one-time-use cardboard boxes, people rent the plastic Frogboxes, which are delivered and picked up by a fleet of biodiesel trucks. There’s no need for packaging tape and no worry that the boxes may weaken or fall apart in varying weather conditions. The hard plastic boxes stack easily and make moving simple and quick.
The professionals at FROGBOX work with the homeowners and businesses and determine the number of boxes needed and then schedule the delivery and pickup. The standard size box is about 2.4 cubic feet. FrogBox also offers wardrobe boxes.
“Starting in July, we will be fully operational and ready for business,” said Don Stillwaugh, business consultant and implementation director for the FrogBox Boise ownership group, AVL Inc. “Cardboard boxes and paper products are a huge burden on landfills, comprising roughly 20-25% of all landfill material,” Stillwaugh stated. “Frogbox produces very little waste. Frogboxes are cheaper, cleaner and greener than buying traditional cardboard boxes and packing tape”.
Additionally, FrogBox donates 1% of gross revenues to frog habitat restoration. Frogs are the most threatened vertebrate group on Earth, with nearly one-third of the world’s 6,468 amphibian species in danger. At their current rate, frogs are disappearing faster than dinosaurs did.
Moving is rated as one of life’s most stressful events. FrogBox was created to fill a need for a convenient, cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to using cardboard boxes for moving. Cardboard boxes are not an ideal solution for moving a home or business. They add unneeded hassle and expense to each move. FrogBox’s purpose is to make every move as easy and affordable as possible while minimizing the impact on the environment. FrogBox provides eco-friendly reusable moving boxes and other moving supplies. Information on the company can be found on the Internet at http://www.frogbox.com/boise
