If you're like most people, you probably don't give much thought to the environmental impact of your moving boxes. After all, they're just boxes, right? WRONG! The truth is that those cardboard boxes you've been using to move your belongings are actually a major source of pollution. Every year, millions of tons of cardboard are sent to landfills, where they sit and decay, releasing methane gas into the atmosphere. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is significantly more potent than carbon dioxide, meaning that it contributes even more to climate change.
So what's the alternative? Renting plastic moving boxes from JJ Fords, of course! By renting reusable plastic moving boxes, you can save money and help the environment at the same time. Here's why you should make the switch:
They're More Durable
If you've ever used cardboard boxes to move before, then you know how flimsy they can be. One wrong move and your belongings come spilling out onto the ground. Plastic moving boxes, on the other hand, are much more durable and sturdy. They're also stackable, so you can maximize space in your moving truck or storage unit.
They're More Environmentally Friendly
As we mentioned before, cardboard boxes add a significant amount of pollution to our landfills every year. Plastic moving boxes can be reused multiple times before they need to be recycled, which dramatically reduces their environmental impact. In fact, if everyone who moved in the United States this year rented plastic moving boxes instead of using cardboard ones, we could reduce our carbon footprint by over 400 million pounds! That's equivalent to taking 36,000 cars off the road for an entire year.
They Save You Money
Cardboard boxes are only meant to be used once before being thrown away, which means that you have to keep buying new ones every time you move (or end up stuck with a bunch of useless cardboard). Plastic moving boxes can be rented for a fraction of the price of buying new cardboard ones every time you need them. Plus, we will even pick them up from your house when you're done with them so you don't have to worry about recycling or disposing of them yourself.
Renting plastic moving boxes from JJ Fords is a win-win for everyone involved. You save money and time while also helping the environment by reducing pollution and landfill waste. So what are you waiting for? Make the switch today!
