Here at Ecovention, LLC we strive to make planet earth a better place via our offering of environmentally friendly packaging products. It puts a smile on our face every day to know that we are helping out in a small, but meaningful, way. But, at the end of last year, we helped the world in a way that we never could have imagined… we helped avert a global economic meltdown!
Now, you may be asking yourself… how could a little packaging company avert a global economic meltdown? Well, we would have asked the same question too, if not for an article we stumbled upon, entitled "Pizza Expert Searches for Box That is Said to Have Prevented Government Shutdown."
According to that article, photographic evidence of an aide at the Capitol pushing a cart stocked with pizza on October 15, 2013 to Speaker of the House John Boehner's office, gave proof that pizza helped prevent a government shutdown. And what was said pizza packaged in? None other than our GreenBox pizza box (branded SmartBox) used by Washington D.C. area chain, Pizza Boli's! Check out Pizza Boli's cool demo video for their SmartBox here:
Not surprisingly, Scott Weiner, an award-winning expert about pizza and the proud owner of the world’s largest pizza box collection, is now on a mission to get his hands on Pizza Boli's SmartBox. “I want that box,” Weiner said when he was reached for comment. “To some people it’s just a piece of garbage…But to me it’s a piece of America’s political history.” Well said, Scott!
