Why did Rebox create this program? We saw the need to do our part to help the environment. Corrugated cardboard boxes were everywhere we looked. They are used to ship goods between manufactures and suppliers, between suppliers and retailers and between retailers and consumers. Between 2000 and 2005, American consumption of cardboard was up about 1.5% annually. US demand for corrugated cardboard boxes is expected to rise 2.5% annually for the next three years, reaching nearly $41 billion by 2012.

So why not just recycle? Some scientists argue that no trees are saved when boxes are constructed from recycled fiber; some virgin fibers always will be necessary and the energy to turn them into boxes will continue to be expended. They also point out that the recycling process itself produces greenhouse gases. Rebox therefore decided that re-using boxes would be a great way to lessen the impact on the environment.
