Plastic Storage Bins - Friend or Foe?
Plastic is currently undergoing somewhat of a hate campaign with zero-waste and plastic-free advocates in the forefront of media coverage on environmental sustainability. Our company is all about making choices that minimise the impact on the environment however we happen to also think that plastic storages crates are a good option when moving house and here's why.
Although they are made of plastic, they can be reused indefinitely whereas cardboard moving boxes and generally used once or twice before getting thrown away. In the long-term, if you keep the plastic storage boxes for use around the home then they should provide many years of use.
Additionally plastic storage boxes have a few more advantages over cardboard cartons.
- They are stackable - great for when you are moving as you can utilise the full height of the moving container or truck
- They are waterproof - any spills will be contained within one box rather than spreading through the whole load
- They usually have handles and are designed for use with a platform trolley for easy movement
- They come fully assembled - you don't have to tape them together.
