Loving the Earth, Today & Always

Earth’s resources are precious, and here at GreenBox, we’re on a mission to preserve them. 

This year, Earth Day is observed on April 22, but inside our “box” – not a day goes by that we don’t take the time to celebrate our wonderful planet. Earth Day is just a reminder of the objective we’ve been working toward since the beginning: innovating to meet the needs of today, while protecting the resources of tomorrow.

And we’re ecstatic to say that we’re doing just that. 

Last week, the GreenBox made headlines in PSFK for “eliminating waste four-fold.” As the article points out, in the U.S. alone, 2.4 billion pizza boxes are used every year. By replacing just 1 million (0.04%) of these with our 100% recycled and recyclable GreenBox, we would preserve the following resources:

  • 5,950 trees on 30 acres of land
  • 1,120 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 2,450,000 gallons of water
  • 1,435,000 kilowatt hours of energy
  • 700 barrels of oil
  • 205,450 pounds of air pollution 

The statistics are astounding.

So today (and every day), we ask that you do your part to make a difference. Cut your morning shower just a little bit short. Take the time to recycle your morning paper. Trade out an old light bulb for an eco-friendly alternative. Bike to work. 

Because, if we’ve learned anything – it’s that small changes can make a remarkable difference.

We all can do our part to keep the Earth beautiful. Remember: we only have one planet, and there is no place like home.
