What happens when cardboard gets wet?

You may have experienced it for yourself – you’re in the midst of a major move with your mind racing in a thousand directions trying to get everything done when BAM, it’s raining! What to do about all of those boxes left out?

Rain can indeed leave a nasty number on cardboard boxes, potentially threatening to damage your possessions and most cherished items, especially if the cardboard on the box has not been properly sealed. 

You can easily prevent this type of situation by using the environmentally friendly products offered by the team at the Chicago Green Box. Each box is made of 100% recyclable materials – think reusable plastic rather than disposable cardboard. Not only will your move be easier and more environmentally friendly, you won’t risk being left out in the rain with ruined items if the storm clouds move in on moving day.
