The Green Box – An Eco-Friendly Pizza Box That Transforms into Serving Plates

Did you know that in the U.S. alone about 350 slices of pizza are eaten each second? That’s a whole lot of people ordering pizza that comes in a pizza box. What’s bad about these pizza boxes is that most of them take up a large amount of space in your fridge. They also don’t fit into your standard size trash cash, so you end up getting grease and cheese on your hands when you try to break them down.

William Walsh has come up with a solution to all of your pizza box woes. It’s called the Green Box. The Green Box is what the New York Daily News calls “The Swiss Army Knife of Pizza Boxes.” Just like a Swiss Army Knife is multifunctional, so is the Green Box.

The top of the pizza box can be torn off and separated into four serving plates. The bottom of the box can transform into a conveniently small storage box.

Watch William demonstrate:

Not only is the box green because it reduces waste, but it’s also made from 100% recycled corrugated cardboard.

With the Green Box you don’t have to worry about dirtying plates or finding space in your fridge for oversized pizza boxes. Plus, you can take leftovers to work in the storage box!

  1. what’s wrong with just picking it up and eating a slice? : )

    • I know, that’s how I usually do it…but I guess most people (without as big a family as mine) would have some left over to put in the fridge, and might use paper plates or something, so this would help with both of those issues.

  4. Pretty cool idea. There is no one using these in my area, but it seems that even a regular pizza box could just be cut up to work.

  5. Is this a joke? Could you not do this with an ordinary pizza box? Cardboard in its unaltered state can indeed be both torn AND bent 😮
