According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, only about half of cardboard that Americans discard actually gets recycled. But if you’re moving, what choice do you really have but to use cardboard boxes, right? Wrong! BungoBox is a new moving service that drops off durable, reusable containers to people for a fraction of what it would cost them to buy cardboard boxes. Though they’re made of plastic (for durability), the boxes are used over and over by many different folks unlike cardboard boxes which may fall apart and then need to be trashed. And after BungoBoxes finally break, they are even recycled and made into new boxes.
