U-Haul's Reusable Boxes

U-Haul's Reusable Boxes

We're moving and trying out with different ways to go green in the process. We liked the idea of U-Haul's reusable boxes. They are preprinted with labels for multiple moves so that they can be easily reused. So why is this box sitting with our recycling?

It's made out of weak cardboard, so it ripped and tore in the normal course of moving. Perhaps with tender care you could get one reuse out of these boxes, but there's just no way you could use them four times as the green-printed labels suggest.

Oh well. Now those liquor store boxes more than one Re-nest reader recommended? They're on their third trip shuttling stuff back and forth and no worse for wear.
