ZippGo Proposes to Move Your Things Without Waste


Triple Pundit is excited to be a media partner for this year’s Sustainable Brands conference in Monterey, CA on June 7-10. This post is part of a showcase for SB10’s Innovation Open – an early stage business competition that brings 11 exciting new ideas to the stage. Be sure to drop by the competition on June 7th.

Green entrepreneur Ash Sud has created a simple way for people to move while drastically reducing waste. As an alternative to traditional cardboard moving boxes and tape, ZippGo rents green plastic moving boxes for residential and office moves.

The boxes are delivered to a client’s home or office one week before their move date and picked up from their new location one week after they’ve moved in. The ZippGo boxes can be reused more then 500 times each, saving trees, energy, and resources. In addition, ZippGo sells moving supplies made from recycled materials and makes deliveries using trucks powered by biodiesel. The company’s aim is to eliminate the use of cardboard and non-biodegradable packing materials by offering a “green” solution which makes the moving process cheaper and simpler. With rentals starting from just $99, ZippGo looks like an affordable solution that’s less hassle than conventional moving businesses, too.

More details will be revealed on June 7th at Sustainable Brands and Triple Pundit will be there to see how it stacks up to the rest of the competition.
