A Box Life is a Columbia Sportswear-sponsored initiative that encourages communal effort to reuse cardboard shipping boxes. The goal of A Box Life is to keep cardboard boxes in use longer, reduce shipping impacts and encourage people to personally reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Portland-based Columbia Sportswear offers customers the option of receiving their merchandise in a used box. The box arrives with a special A Box Life sticker that allows tracking the life of the box online or with a cell phone using a 2-dimensional bar code called a QR code and reader software.
Check out the A Box Life website for more information and a map showing box travels and the stories behind each box adventure.
