THE BOX: Sustainability
Read all about the sustainability and THE BOX
Is THE BOX 100% recyclable?
The outer shell of THE BOX made out of EPP, a material that can be 100% recycled infinitely. The other components of THE BOX can also be recycled and we take particular care to make sure this happens. We intend to recondition THE BOX after a 1,000 cycles again and again because we think reusing is even more clever than recycling. If a unit of THE BOX is damaged, we take them into one of our maintenance centers to repair them. The great thing is that the life of THE BOX does not end after 1,000
How do you save CO2?
By using THE BOX instead of the normal cardboard packaging, more than 200 kilograms of CO2 emissions per unit are saved after 1,000 cycles. Now imagine that with many millions of units of our sustainable packaging how much CO2 we could save?
How do you protect the oceans?
No bubble wrap or other packaging material is required for shipping with THE BOX. In time, this will help us avoid millions of tons of packaging waste that ends up in our oceans every year.
Do I need filling material like bubble wrap? How is the shipment packed?
No, just put your item in THE BOX directly and it will be safe and well protected. You will not need additional packaging material like bubble wrap again. We have integrated a sophisticated holding system to secure your shipment during transport. Goodbye bubble wrap, crumpled newspapers and adhesive tape, say hello to sustainability and ease of use!
How many times can THE BOX be used ?
Our goal is to have a THE BOX unit make 1,000 trip before needing reconditiong. We then sent it out again for 1,000 more trips. And then again. And then again...We can detect when a unit needs maintenance and thanks to our smart features can redirect THE BOX to a maintenance center as needed.
