Many businesses that are environmentally responsible will discard their used cardboard boxes off to the recycling centers, but environmentally responsible businesses that are also a bit savvy, will avoid recycling their used boxes and resell them to UsedCardboardBoxes.com instead.
Marty Metro, Founder and CEO of UsedCardboardBoxes.com has taken his "neighborhood experiment" of buying and selling used cardboard boxes, and turned it into a business that has a customer base that includes a national contract UPS and has caught the attention of Wal-Mart by claiming to cut their costs by 10-15 percent!
UsedCardboardBoxes.com buys used boxes from large companies at higher rate than recycling centers and then sells the used boxes to other companies and consumers at a lower rate than retail stores. They offer free 1-2 day shipping and services every residential and business address in the continental U.S.!
The company's slogan is fantastic: "Save time, save money, save trees"!
