Impact Tip - Are you moving?

Are you moving before or after your big day? Is your family expanding so you need more space? I actually came upon this site while looking for something completely different but I actually will be moving in April to get a little more room for the baby so I was thankful to find this as a resource.

Check out UsedCardboardBoxes.com!

Anyway, this company was featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, Daily Candy, Environmental News Network and many more.

They say it best...

"Rescue, Resell, Recycle™

UsedCardboardBoxes.com takes an innovative approach to providing low-cost, earth-friendly moving boxes. We "rescue" truckloads of quality used boxes from large companies that might otherwise recycle them or simply throw them away. We bring the boxes back to one of our regional distribution centers where they are inspected and sorted by size and shape. Boxes that meet our strict requirements for quality, shape and strength are pre-packed (along with convenient accessories) into our low-cost, earth-friendly "stacks" and "kits". We then "resell" those boxes to customers all across North America, via our website. We offer free shipping on any residential order and guarantee delivery in 1-2 business days. As we like to say, "you don't have cut down a tree to make a used cardboard box!"

UsedCardboardBoxes.com strives to be a zero-waste company. We "recycle" any boxes that don't meet our strict quality, shape and strength criteria by sending them to a traditional recycling company. UsedCardboardBoxes.com is a win/win/win/win/win: for our suppliers, customers, employees, shareholders and the environment!

Many people think using a cardboard box once and sending it to the traditional recycler is the most responsible way to help the environment. In fact, we feel that most boxes that are sent to recycler are actually being prematurely terminated! The process of recycling cardboard boxes requires a great deal of energy, chemicals and emissions that have their own negative impact on our environment not to mention all the trees that still have to be cut down to make new boxes (even if they are advertised as containing some recycled content). At UsedCardboardBoxes.com, we feel strongly that is it better to reuse a cardboard box at least once, before it is sent to a traditional recycler. By offering quality used cardboard boxes for less and providing free shipping anywhere in the US, we help our customers SAVE TIME, SAVE
MONEY, SAVE TREES™ ."

So check them out to save some green! Trees saved to date...15,163!

Hi Kristina - WHAT A NICE POST!!! I'm the founder/ceo of UsedCardboardBoxes.com and got a google alert for your blog. How nice of you to help us spread the word, about quality USED boxes??? I really appreciate it. We've come a long way, since we were hand-assembling moving kits in Los Angeles, back in 2002. Today, we ship to every residential address in the US (for free) and we owe it ALL to great, supportive customers like you! Thanks for your business AND support!

If you think that drop shipping seems to be a good way to earn money but you have no idea where to start. You should first decide what products do you want to sell. After that, find a supplier which caters to that specific product. You should delve for information about your supplier that may affect your business. Ask if they deliver to the territory where you are and what are the payment terms. Most importantly, make sure that the supplier is trust-worthy. You can use wholesaler directory lists like Salehoo to make sure that you as well as the reputation of your company or store are protected from fraud.
