BoxedGreen in the “Companies That Care” Spotlight

We are happy to give the “Companies That Care” spotlight to BoxedGreen, a company that connects the local San Diego community to inexpensive and practical packing alternatives, while reducing their environmental impact.

BoxedGreen is the brainchild of Eaman Talai, who after moving from Oklahoma to Chicago to New York to San Diego, recognized the need for a cheaper and greener solution for packing materials. Eaman also noticed that retail stores are constantly receiving new product shipments in cardboard boxes that can oftentimes be reused but were instead being recycled prematurely. Bringing these stores and some key individuals together in an efficient way seemed like the perfect opportunity to start a green business and thus BoxedGreen was born.

Approximately 40 million Americans, or 13% of the population, move each year. Roughly 12 trees are cut down to create one ton of new cardboard moving boxes, and corrugated boxes are the largest category of municipal solid waste. Reusing boxes cuts down on the waste produced by such a common and repetitive task.

Buying boxes through BoxedGreen is an opportunity to help mother nature. BoxedGreen eliminates the need for you to go hunting or begging for boxes for your move. Instead, BoxedGreen connects you with local stores closest to you that have the boxes you need for only $1 each! The boxes are high-quality, perfectly functional and gently used. Here’s how BoxedGreen works:

1) Use their easy-to-use platform online to find the nearest store(s) with the quantity and sizes of boxes you are looking for. You are able to buy from as many stores as you want.

That’s it!

BoxedGreen also donates a portion of all their sales to green causes. They have partnered with some really cool non-profit environmental organizations that all strive to make the world a greener place. BoxedGreen is part of 1% For The Planet, which is an alliance of more than 1,200 businesses that commit at least 1% of sales to more than 3,000 approved environmental organizations.

BoxedGreen is currently only available in San Diego but will be expanding to other cities very soon!
