Green Pizza Box

This is one of those – “How has no one thought of that??” ideas.
If you haven’t heard about the ‘Green Box’, it’s really quite brilliant. In short, it’s a 100% recycled pizza box where the top turns into 4 plates and the bottom folds over to create a smaller box for housing your leftover slices.
The crux of why this is so great –> most recycling centers will not accept paper or cardboard products that have been soiled by food (e.g., pizza boxes). And since curbside composting is not available in most of the country, pizza boxes often end up in landfills. The green box allows them to be re-used and allows folks to reduce the amount of food packaging they would have otherwise used (e.g., no need for those paper plates).
