OK, I'm a sucker for a good-looking frog. So when I saw Frogbox, I knew it was time to update my last post on greener moving boxes - alternatives to going out and buying a bunch of new cardboard boxes. Frogbox serves greater Seattle and greater Vancouver, British Columbia. [via Springwise]
Another option is Rentacrate, which serves Boston, Hartford, New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Charlotte, Tampa, Detroit, Chicago, Kansas City, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
The crates are mostly for commercial moves, and for things like computer equipment; for other items, the company provides the Rentabox. [via Daily Danny]
And let's not forget Rent-A-Green Box - mentioned in my prior post and serving Los Angeles County, Long Beach and Orange County.
As Grist writes about renting plastic moving containers: "This may be a win-win solution. You get a durable crate, and so do 400 other people."
And of course, decluttering before you move is always a good idea. Why spend the resources (time, money and energy) to move things you won't even want in your new home?
