Blue Is The New Green!
Des Moines Metro
Statistics show that with a population of over 500,000 people in the Des Moines metro that there are over 35,000 home moves each year, and over 20,000 of these are in-county or local moves. If one were to assume that each of those moves used on average 30 cardboard boxes, that is over one million cardboard boxes that are being taped up, broke down, and eventually discarded, and that is just right here in our local area! Some of those one million boxes will get recycled, but unfortunately the majority end up in our local landfills. With over 14% of the U.S. population packing up and moving each year, we are filling our landfills with hundreds of millions of cardboard boxes. And that’s a lot of trees!
Plastic vs Cardboard
So with all of this moving going on, what can you do to reduce your moving footprint on the world? BlueCow Boxes™ offers an affordable, reusable, eco-friendly alternative to the traditional brown cardboard moving box. Our moving boxes are constructed of recycled plastic with industrial strength, uniform size for stacking, and easy-to-grip handles that will never rip. And without cardboard you don’t have to worry about what to do with your boxes when your move is done. You don’t have to break down and get rid of a pile of cardboard after just one use. With cardboard boxes, you have to balance your packing and you can only stack boxes four or five feet high. Many people pack their boxes unevenly and it’s easy for cardboard to get crushed in the course of a move. With BlueCow Boxes™ you can stack them to the roof of the moving truck with no worry about crushing the moving boxes below.
Let's Get Moving!
We offer relocating consumers, small business and corporations with an authentic and genuine eco-friendly packing and moving alternative that's cheaper, faster and easier than using a new or used cardboard box to pack and move their property. And so there you have it, Blue really is the new Green!
