EBay can be best categorized as a glorified online garage sale. EBay is about to get greener as they introduce this October, the eBay box made from 100% FSC-certified material. The trail run will begin with 100,000 units as they evaluate the program with vendors.
The box idea was the grand prize winner at eBay’s annual Innovation Expo, a celebration of creative ideas from eBay employees. Designed for “simple green shipping,” eBay believes that a single box reused five times could save nearly 4,000 trees, 2.4 million gallons of water, and conserve enough energy to juice up 49 homes for a year.
