And the Recession Will be Green…

Posted by: Stacy Perman on October 7, 2008

usedbox.BMP I often get all sorts of interesting pitches in my inbox. Many try targeting their pitch to current events. So it was with great, um, bemusement that I read the following email from a Los Angeles-based moving company, UsedCardboardBoxes.com, announcing its own economic bailout plan.

According to the press release, from now until Election Day ’08, the company will provide one free, earth-friendly moving kit to any US homeowner that has just lost a home to foreclosure.

We’re trying to take the sting out of buying moving supplies… and still show the world that you don’t have to cut down a tree, to make a used cardboard box! Marty Metro, owner of UsedCardboardBoxes.
