Spencer Brown’s brainchild, Rent-A-Green Box, rents plastic moving boxes that it manufactures from landfill gleanings.
As a start-up in 2006, Rent-A-Green Box did business as EarthFriendlyMoving. Since that time, Rent-A-Green Box has developed seven unique packing and packaging materials for moving and shipping all of which use post-consumer trash.
The Costa Mesa, California company won the 2009 Small Business of the Year Award and has begun licensing distributors across the country. Franchise information requests can be made online.
