Eco-Friendly Reusable Crates

No cardboard no tape and no waste! In the United States alone 6.95 million tons of cardboard are either burned or disposed of in landfills each year. Blue Crates is committed to doing its part, and helping you do yours in eliminating the use of cardboard in the storage and moving process.

In addition, Blue Crates donates a portion of its profits to environmentally focused charities. For more information on this please visit our FAQ.
