Please welcome our newest Green Business partner
Please welcome Green Packer Moving Boxes to the Sarasota County Green Business Partnership. Green Packer is veteran owned moving box rental business and a member of the Business Network International Southwest Florida.
Green Packer just celebrated Earth Day with its continuous, green initiative, “moving in the right direction.” Green Packer is changing the way people move by providing a low-cost and convenient alternative to cardboard. The industrial-strength plastic moving bins have an integrated lid, which means no messy tape or assembly required. Our goal is to make moving more efficient and cost less for everyone.
Cardboard boxes encompass a significant volume of waste generated by residential and business movers across the country. Landfills continue to overflow with cardboard boxes, which are the largest component of solid waste TODAY. Green Packer helps eliminate the need for cardboard moving boxes by providing a reusable bin in its place. Green Packer supports the growth of reusable plastic moving containers by simplifying our customers moving needs while providing a cost effective, more efficient moving solution.
The Green Packer philosophy is to reuse, reduce, while you relocate.
As a Green Business Partnership member, Green-Packer is much more that an environmentally focused service. The company regularly discusses environmental and sustainability efforts, and promotes green efforts via its website and marketing materials.
Green-Packer noted that the moving bins it uses are made from recycled plastic materials in the United States. The bins are cleaned and sanitized using eco-friendly methods between each job site, and deliveries are made using a hybrid vehicle, reducing the impacts on the environment.
As a business that produces virtually zero waste, Green Packer has had only had two moving bins damaged, and those are being used for storage.
