Recopacks are the replacement for using new or used cardboard boxes when you pack and move anything. Applying his patent pending, NANO technology to hard to recycle plastic trash, he converts all of those colorful plastic bottles found under your kitchen sink and laundry room into a series of three durable, rentable and reusable moving boxes called Recopacks which stands for [ recycled ecological packing solution ]. They’re the replacement for cardboard moving boxes that save relocating residents and businesses time, money and Earth. They last over 400 round trip applications and when they expire, we just grind them up and make another Recopack!
2. geami packing paper
The word Geami means friends of the earth and the way this paper works for the environment- it think it should be called “Best Friends Forever” of the Earth.
Geami is the modern day eco friendly replacement for petroleum based bubble wrap and it’s made from 100% recycled cardboard sludge. Geami is made right on our trucks from our own self generated power supply, in rolls of 100 or 200 linear feet and is half the cost of bubble wrap. This paper is really designed for higher end breakables like china, porcelain, expensive stemware and heirloom collections. If the item has sentimental or emotional importance in you and or your families life, you want to use Geami, so you can pack your valuables with piece of mind. It’s also great for wrapping picture frame corners and vertical lamps.
“ the replacement for petroleum based Styrofoam packing peanuts”
This compostable packing cube is made from 100% recycled newspaper sludge and is the replacement for petroleum based Styrofoam
packing peanuts or corn based bio-degradable packing materials. After newsprint is recycled, about 40% of the material is reusable and the remaining 60% is too mushy to make into more newsprint stock.
Expandos are the ultimate solution for protecting your most valuable and breakable property in transit- period. Crystal vases, Lladro, sport memorabilia, figurines, rare collectibles, etc.. are safest with Expandos.
We’re so confident in this revolutionary replacement for Styrofoam packing peanuts that we packed up a large [ recopack ] with 12 fresh farm eggs and shipped them overnight to New York City to a tv show producer that did a segment on us for eco biz. Let’s just say there was no egg on our face when then opened up the expando and egg filled [recopack.
5. recopaper“ the replacement for wrapping/tissue/packing paper”
When you’re done unpacking, all you need to do is wad it into balls and till them into your garden, planter box, or container- water them a bit and they’ll become compost for your plants, shrubs and trees! It’s one way to say “hello” to your new trees and plants and they’ll return the favor by turning super green to thank you for moving in an earth friendly way!
“ the replacement for traditional moving labels”
Our label is made from 100% end of use starches that are used to make ethanol fuel. When corn or any natural feed stock is processed into fuel- they end up with a bi-product that they can’t feed to cattle or toss back into a field or even a landfill.
“the replacement for taping a cardboard box”
Reco-zips are made from 100% recycle plastic bottle caps that we remove from all of those hard to recycle plastic bleach, detergent and household chemistry bottles that are used to make our word famous lime green [ recopacks ].
We heard about a sail maker that was stuck with few thousand of square feet of unusable sail cloth material destined for the landfill. I made a few calls, drove over in my pimped out green waste vegetable-oil powered mercedes benz and stuck a deal with the sail maker. I asked for a few days to figure out who would take this stuff off his hands instead of ending up in a landfill. The next day, I had an ah-ha moment and created the recobag.
Made from 100% non usuable sail boat sail fabric and used to transport recocubes, expandos and flat sheets to customers.
After thousands of deliveries, we tried about every dolly made in America. Some had great wheels. Others had amazing support plates and balance- but we could not find that one that was perfect and practical to transport our recopacks- so we made our own custom recodolly made from 100% recycled aluminum cans. Our first step was to locate the best wheels in the world. Check. Then we design a support plate that fit all three sixes of [ recopacks ]. Check. The last step was to design a handle system that was comfortable, maneuverable and consumer friendly.
We milled over 100 in the course of 2007 and we finally nailed it. We rent one of the worlds most over designed dollies ever made from recycled soda cans.
10. poopy pallet
48″ x 40″ x 5″ When your done unpacking all of the Recpacks, place them on the Poopy Pallet and call us. We’ll come pick’em up! No more breaking down cardboard boxes and chasing around all of those pesky little peanuts…
It’s a whole new way to move… it’s the earthfriendlymoving way!
The Pallet is made from over 700 recycled baby diapers and yes they were once used- but have no fear… they were cleaned, sanitized and the anaerobic polymers ( the stuff that will never break down in our landfills) is used like bindingg filament to make the Poppy Pallet. It’s remarkably strong and durable.
