Save the Rock Box Packing Supplies
Our Box is a Boox
Booxes are made from corrugated polypropylene sheets, using a patent-pending design. Produced in the US from a combination of new and post-consumer polypropylene (#5 on the recycled plastics chart – PCR). Boox has a goal to improve the post-consumer percentage over time, eventually getting to 100% PCR. They are also experimenting with material made from ocean plastics and other sources. Boox chose polypropylene (PP) for a variety of reasons— It’s waterproof, tear-proof, and lighter than cardboard, while still being rigid and durable enough to protect products during shipping.
That means each Boox box can be reused many times before reaching the end of life. But, at end of life, PP can be processed back into more Booxes efficiently. Many people think of plastics as detrimental to the environment. Boox would like to encourage people to think differently about it— SINGLE-USE plastics (but really any single-use product) are bad for the environment and can end up in rivers and oceans where they don’t degrade for a long time. But, that same longevity can be put to great use if we can change the culture of consumption and shift towards the circular economy. Scan the QR Code on the Boox to return it so it can be used again and again and again and again ...
Cardboard Shipping Box
To minimize waste generation, the best way to dispose of cardboard would be to recycle it. In case cardboard packaging ends up in nature, decomposition time is only a few months until the complete break down (under the right conditions). It can even be composted at home!
The energy required to recycle cardboard is 50% less in electricity and 90% less in water, compared to the manufacture of virgin packaging materials.

Dissolvable Packing Peanuts
The packing peanuts are starch-based, biodegradable, and eco-friendly. One advantage they have over styrofoam peanuts is that they don’t hold any static and therefore they don’t cling to your clothes as you unpack the package.
However, their ability to absorb moisture makes them unsuitable for humid conditions so reuse them or disolve them. Dissolvable packing peanuts are made of corn or wheat starch, they aren’t toxic to either you or your pet Apart from dissolving them in your sink, you can also add these packing peanuts to your compost. However, they can’t be recycled – most recycling programs just don’t accept them.
Biodegradable packing peanuts can be disposed of by dissolving them in water, particularly warm water. Within 15 minutes, they should be completely dissolved. Alternatively, if you live in a warm and humid area, simply add them to your compost.
