EcoPax Introduces Easier, Less Expensive and Greener Way to Move

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2016 by Lowcountry Boil

76612_FB_Banner-2Ecopax was recently formed in an effort to preserve one of Earth’s most valuable natural resources by helping to eliminate cardboard waste and effectively change how Americans move. Designed to maximize storage and greatly minimize packing time, EcoPax simplifies the moving experience by conveniently delivering sustainable crushproof and waterproof green boxes made from 100% recycled durable plastic materials that stack and roll on a custom dolly. Saving up to 40% in the total cost of a move, EcoPax has discovered a much smarter, easier, and greener way to transition to a new home or office.

“With the ever increasing presence of the cardboard box, something needed to be done to curb its use in our daily lives,” said EcoPax founder Courtney Friedman. “We have way too many cardboard boxes that unfortunately end up in landfills in many cases. EcoPax creates a better moving solution by removing some of the major stresses and eliminating the wasteful use of cardboard.”

unnamed (8)Friedman, an outdoor enthusiast and owner of Low Country Laundry & Dry Cleaners, was searching for a sustainable approach to a cardboard box waste issue that he was noticing in his laundry and dry cleaning business. The EcoPax process makes moving easier and more efficient by using large recycled plastic boxes with folding lids that lock shut and better protect the items inside. Servicing all of Charleston County and parts of Dorchester and Berkeley counties with free delivery and pick up, EcoPax provides pricing packages based on the size of the home or office.  Additionally, EcoPax will be donating a percentage of sales to Charleston County Parks and Recreation, South Carolina State Parks and the National Park Service. EcoPax’s goal is to help customers save money by offering a dramatically easier way to pack and move while simultaneously cutting down on the 6 million tons of cardboard waste that ends up in landfills each year.
