Earth-Friendly Moving: Used Cardboard Boxes Delivered to Your Door

MONTEBELLO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 17, 2007 -- Eco-friendly box provider Used Cardboard Boxes, Inc. is gearing up for the upcoming Earth Day and the nation's busiest moving season -- summer -- when 80% of all residential moves take place.

Used Cardboard Boxes provides quality used boxes as an earth-friendly and low-cost alternative for anyone in need of boxes. Whether for shipping, packing or moving, Used Cardboard Boxes delivers directly to your door, guarantees the lowest prices, delivers in 1 - 2 business days and ships for free. Only 7 months after launching their first distribution center in Los Angeles, the company recently opened another in New York and is planning 2 additional locations by summer.

"We are aiming to ship quality used boxes to any address in the US by summer," says Marty Metro, Founder and CEO of UsedCardboardBoxes.com. "$120 billion of boxes are produced around the world every year, but most are used just once and then thrown away," says Metro, who is passionate about the environmental impact his company is making.

Metro, a former .com executive, founded the company in 2002 and spent four frustrating years trying to bring his vision to reality, without much luck. In 2006, Metro got his big break when his startup was accepted to the Acceleration program of Santa Monica-based venture capital firm Funk Ventures. Today, Used Cardboard Boxes combines advanced web technologies with traditional logistics and warehousing to match supply and demand of millions of quality used boxes as well as brand new boxes that were simply misprinted, overrun, or no longer needed.

"We are meeting the demand for boxes with a supply that already exists, rather than cutting down more trees to make new boxes," Metro explains. "Why would anyone pay for new boxes when we can provide you with perfect, quality used boxes, for less?"
