Not into hunting for cardboard boxes before you move? Vancouver-based FrogBox rents plastic boxes so you don’t have to use cardboard boxes.

A week’s rental for a one bedroom condo costs about $110. The company will drop off plastic boxes at your old house and pick them up at your new place.

FrogBox, which also just opened in Seattle, estimates that Greater Vancouver uses about 450,000 cardboard boxes every month for moving, and Seattle uses about one million. “The amount of resources used by people using FrogBoxes for moving is drastically reduced,” says founder Doug Burgoyne.

FrogBox gives one per cent of their sales to frog habitat restoration.
