Cardboard is essentially a heavy form of paper. While you can use cardboard to produce items such as storage boxes (for this instance)... the lightweight material comes with three major downsides.
Firstly, cardboard is relatively weak and will fold or tear easily. Secondly, cardboard also has a low weather resistance. Water and other liquids will saturate and further weaken cardboard products. And last but most importantly, where do you dispose of your cardboard boxes after use? Even if you are keen at recycling, ultimately “all disposable packaging is bad,” and while recycling can help, it only halves the environmental impact.
Switching to plastic crates is the eco-friendly option!
Our Easycrates are made from top quality sturdy plastic designed to last for many years! Our crates are strong and durable constructed to have minimum impact on the environment, and unlike single use cardboard boxes - our crates are designed to be used a hundred times over.
After each relocation, we will inspect, clean and sanitise the crates to ensure the cleanliness of the crate for our next customer. This helps to prolong the lifespan of our crates, getting the maximum use out of each and every one of them before proceeding to recycle it when they can no longer be used.
With Easycrate, you can move with ease - safe in the knowledge that you’re one step closer to saving the environment and making the world a greener, better place.
As the saying goes “Recycling is good, but reusing is better.”
