The folks at eBay have created a box that is super green in their mission that began last year to be more environmentally friendly. Every eBay Box is made with 100 percent recycled content, printed with water-based inks, and designed to require minimal tape. With hopes that the box will be reused by the receiver, eBay has printed clever messages from their new bird mascot like “Where to Next?” If each box gets used 5 times, these boxes could potentially protect 4,000 trees, save 2.4 million gallons of water, and conserve enough electricity to power 49 homes for a year. Then, once the box is ready for retirement after its many travels, it’s fully recyclable! The bird mascot even provides this reassuring message: “Don’t worry, it will come back as something nice, like a birthday card or movie theater popcorn bag.”
