eBay Wins Award For Reuseable Shipping Box

The eBay Box a green re-useable shipping box which was developed last year has won the creative world’s equivalent of an Oscar.

The eBay Box earned the Silver CLIO Award in the Packaging category. The annual awards, named for a muse in Greek mythology, recognize excellence in creative industries across a broad range of mediums. Submissions go through multiple levels of evaluation, and less than 10 percent of the submissions make it past the first round.

eBay first introduced the eBay Box at eBay’s Innovation Expo last year to encourage sellers to consider the environmental impact of the shipping materials they use. Since that time, eBay has given out more than 100,000 of the reusable boxes.

The eBay Box has been said to be a real tribute to the eBay’s commitment to sustainability.

eBay says that if each of the boxes gets reused at least five times, nearly 4,000 trees would be protected and 2.4 million gallons of water would be conserved. This idea is currently being trialled in the USA only before hitting other platforms.
