Green Ebay Box

by Kerry on September 14, 2010

I have not found any green delights in awhile which always bums me out but I was excited to see that eBay is launching a new set of reusable boxes.  Starting in October, the company is giving away 100,000 green shipping boxes. Each box is made with 100 percent recycled content, printed with water-based inks, and designed to require minimal tape. The box is fully recyclable and even has cute fine print: “Don’t worry, it will come back as something nice, like a birthday card or movie theater popcorn bag.”

According to eBay, if each box gets used five times, the program could protect nearly 4,000 trees, save 2.4 million gallons of water, and conserve enough electricity to power 49 homes for a year.
