Donate Your Unwanted Goods with Give Back Box

Give Back Box Logo.If you shop online a fair amount, you probably find yourself breaking down lots of boxes for recycling. Not only can these boxes choke your recycling bin, but it also seems like such a waste. Isn’t there something else you could do with that big box from Amazon?

One option is Give Back Box. Give Back Box is a program which hopes to make donating perfectly usable goods to people in need. The way it works is simple: When you receive a box from an online retailer, pack it full of serviceable goods you no longer need, then print a shipping label from Give Back Box. Give Back Box has a wide array of charities to choose from, and shipping labels are only $15.

Given that “an estimated 11 million tons of clothing, footwear, towels, bedding, drapery, and other textiles end up in U.S. landfills every year,” Give Back Box is a no-hassle alternative to chucking your unwanted items in the trash. You probably work with clients every day who are decluttering, piling up perfectly good household items they could pass along. Did you know “the average US household has around $7000 dollars of unwanted items“?

Dozens of online retailers have included Give Back Box flyers with the orders they ship. This results in a higher degree of reuse, which is preferable to recycling. (And let’s not forget: your donations are tax deductible.) The benefits are environmental, social, and economical.
