I saw this earlier today and was fascinated. Environmentally Conscious Organization (e.c.o) developed a pizza box manufactured from recycled material. I must admit, I don’t recycle much but every time I read about environmental issues I get more motivated to try and be more cautious about recycling and re-use papers and things like that.

Environmentally Conscious Organization (e.c.o.), Inc. is a design and licensing firm, dedicated to improving outmoded, outdated and wasteful food packaging. e.c.o. is marketing its first product, the ‘Green Box’ (US Patent 7,051,919), a pizza box manufactured from 100% recycled material. The top of the ‘Green Box’ breaks down into convenient serving plates, eliminating the need for disposable plates. The remainder of the box converts easily into a handy storage container, eliminating the need for plastic wrap, tin foil or plastic bags. The perforations and scores that create this functionality allow for easy disposal into a standard-sized recycling bin. Made from a standard pizza blank, the ‘Green Box’ requires no additional material or major redesign and can therefore be produced at no additional manufacturing cost. e.c.o. owns the utility patent on the ‘Green Box.’

Simple and clever design. I, for one, usually use plates when I have leftover pizza. But I’m definitely curious to see what’s the outcome of this.

    That box is epic and all pizza places should use it, but that sadly probably won’t be happening. It’s simple, efficient and eco-friendly!
