As a person who always seems to have cardboard boxes around and no use for them except the recycling bin, it’s good to see people with better ideas than me.
Boxsmart is a company which offers a central place for companies to buy and sell used and surplus boxes.
Based in Arizona, Boxsmart has more than three million boxes in 800 different sizes (who knew there were that many?) and pays companies more than traditional recycling methods which bales the cardboard up and sends it abroad.
It’s also a socially responsible company. It provides work for more than 500 physically and mentally challenged people in its sorting, assembly and processing facilities.
