What can you do with all those old holiday gift boxes?


Have you ever stopped to consider the vast amounts of packaging that goes into the gift-giving season? Where do all those unpacked packages go after we wrap up the holidays?

Well this year Amazon and Goodwill have initiated a partnership called Give Back Box that aims to provide a solution for at least some of your empty boxes. Rather than just recycling Amazon boxes, you can now put those donations that you've been meaning to bring to Goodwill but just haven't quite made the time for yet INTO your Amazon box and MAIL it there! By going to www.givebackbox.com, you can see all of the participating retail stores and print out a free shipping label. The donations that Goodwill receives and later sells (89 cents of every dollar) go to supporting their social services within communities. This is your chance to make a difference!
