Plastic, unlike cardboard, is safe for microwave use, makes great cutlery, and cannot be destroyed during games of fire-hose tag. Nix cardboard moving supplies with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a moving package for one-bedroom's worth of plastic moving boxes and packing supplies from ZippGo (a $128 value). This deal is valid for the following cities: San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, San Mateo, Burlingame, Foster City, Daly City, and Brisbane.
Made from 100% recycled plastic, ZippGo's reusable moving boxes offer a more efficient, durable, and eco-conscious alternative to traditional cardboard boxes. Prior to moves, ZippGo will deliver 25 plastic moving boxes in three sizes (medium, large, and extra-large), along with one roll of recycled packing paper, box labels, and zip ties to your curbside, with an optional $18.75 fee applied for delivery up stairs or an elevator. Engineered to easily stack on top of each other, ZippGo's boxes are made of durable plastics that won't wilt or break from over-packing. Plus, their interlocking lids eliminate the need for tape and help reduce packing time. One week after drop-off, ZippGo staff members will cruise over to your new residence inside one of their biodiesel trucks to pick up the empty boxes, and customers can purchase an additional week available for $20. ZippGo boxes can be used 400 times before being recycled, saving 400 cardboard boxes in the process, which translates into roughly four trees or 17 bajillion toothpicks.
