U-Haul Offers Eco-Friendly Holiday Gift Boxes And Packing Solutions

PHOENIX, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Give the environment a gift this holiday season by purchasing sustainable products for wrapping and packing your holiday gifts. U-Haul holiday boxes come in red and green, with matching packing tape, all of which allow consumers to create unique gift packages that can go directly under the tree (or be shipped directly to the recipient), thereby eliminating the need for wrapping paper.


U-Haul holiday boxes are made of up to 90 percent postconsumer content and meet UPS and FedEx shipping requirements, and come with a 100 percent nationwide buyback guarantee when returned unused with a receipt.

Don't forget to protect your precious gifts with U-Haul packing peanuts, which are made from potato starch and are 100 percent biodegradable; or you can use Enviro-Bubble wrap made from recycled polyethylene. Use U-Haul rental furniture pads, made from recycled denim, for larger gift items such as furniture, expensive paintings, artifacts, etc., that you may need to transport or move for the holiday season.  The furniture pads are durable, washable and can be used over and over again.

"All year round, U-Haul carries the widest selection of boxes with the best prices, including boxes to protect your holiday ornaments and store your Christmas tree for the next holiday season," stated Steve Dudley, program manager, U-Haul Boxes and Moving Supplies. "Today, U-Haul provides a complete line of moving and storage products designed to protect customers' possessions and the environment, all available from neighborhood U-Haul Centers or online at"

If you visit a U-Haul location, make sure to check out the Take a Box/Leave a Box display, which enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allow other customers to take them as needed - FREE.  You may get lucky and find some holiday boxes available for reuse - for FREE.

But most importantly, please remember this: After unwrapping presents this holiday season, instead of throwing your reusable boxes into the recycle bin, please drop them off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge. You can also offer the boxes to others (or find some) by logging on to After all, reuse always beats recycling.
