FrogBox Easy for people and for the environment By Nykea Behiel Photos by Erin Crooks


atherine and Scott McQueen read about a compelling story about a company dedicated to helping people and the environment. Inspired, they founded the Saskatoon franchise of FrogBox. “Moving is stressful. We want to make things easier for people at no greater cost, while decreasing our impact on the environment,” says Catherine. FrogBox delivers eco-friendly, reusable plastic boxes and wardrobes instead of cardboard boxes, and they pick them up when the move is complete. The lidded boxes are easier to use than cardboard, and come with simple labels so you can reduce your use of tape, which cannot be recycled. When not in use, the boxes are nestable, unlike cardboard boxes. Choosing this convenient method to move makes a significant impact on the environment. Cardboard and paper products make for an estimated 18% to 26% of landfills. Not only is FrogBox’s option popular for the residential population, but its popularity is quickly growing with companies and corporations who choose actions based on a model of corporate social responsibility. Choosing FrogBox is beneficial in appearance, as well as making good business sense. The FrogBox website is easy-to-navigate and shows a detailed price breakdown suitable for all budgets.
