It’s now possible to go green when moving house and reduce your environmental impact by using www.eco-boxes.co.uk, a new internet company which supplies gently used recycled moving boxes to the public and removal companies, making it cheaper and greener to move house.

Eco boxes hopes to make a dent in the estimated 18000* tonnes of cardboard that will be used this year on boxes for moving house, by using this straight forward concept. When you finish with a box, simply let Eco boxes pick them up from you free of charge and they will then re-use your perfectly good boxes, saving on the environmental impact of recycling.

All boxes included in our ‘Eco moving packs’ are thoroughly checked for rips and tears, weakening of the box and marks or stains on the insides. Each pack contains a useful selection of 16 different size boxes, 10 metres of oxo bio-degradable bubble wrap, non toxic bio-degradable parcel tape and a marker pen made from recycled products.

There is no time limit for keeping the boxes and the service is offered Nationwide** with next working day delivery and collection service. If you need to keep some of the boxes, we will simply collect the number of Eco packs you wish to return.

Editor’s notes:

We have been associated with the removal and storage industry for over 20 years, from running a successful removals and storage company to offering support services to the industry more recently. We began selling quality removal boxes and packaging goods to the trade and general public over 5 years ago and pride ourselves on innovation and forward thinking.

Over the past 5 years we have developed new and exciting boxes and products to help with moving house. Our company helpiammoving.com has always taken environmental responsibility very seriously, planting trees to offset carbon emissions for over 3 years now and sourcing products as locally as possible. All our boxes are made from recycled material, recyclable and contain non toxic inks and glues. Our plastics are made from 50% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and all our bubblewrap is now Bio Degradable including our tape in our Eco packs.

"We have always asked customers to pass the boxes on after using them." says Andrew Scholey of Eco boxes "but became aware that so often this just wasn't possible. Boxes that could be used again ended up at the local recycling depot to be turned back into boxes. This is a bizarre scenario, recycling for recycling sake. We wanted to find a solution to this, and so came up with concept of Eco boxes.”
