Recycle Your Moving Boxes!

Moving from one place to the next means packing and emptying a lot of boxes. The bigger your house, the more boxes you have when the job is done. An average move uses around 60 boxes, which is a half ton pine tree! There are many ways in which you can reuse or recycle your boxes rather then putting them on the curb for the garbage man.

A great way to recycle moving boxes, or large appliance boxes is to give them to the kids. Children can decorate and create unimaginable things from cardboard. As a child my favorite was to create a little house out of  large recycled  boxes. You can cut out a door, windows, paint the house, and let your imagination run wild. You can make costumes, castles, forts, furniture, and countless other creations from a simple cardboard box.
