Air Van Moving in Boise, Idaho has partnered with FrogBox Boise for a local cause.
Spay Neuter Idaho Pets, Inc. (SNIP) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted cats and dogs in Idaho, through low cost spay and neuter services, education and encouraging animal rescue groups and shelters to work together toward our common goals.
FrogBox Boise has donated 100 FrogBoxes for their “Spay” Ghetti No Balls fundraiser taking place on Sunday February 24th in the BSU Simplot Ballroom located at 1700 University Drive. All the proceeds support SNIP’s mission to reduce the over-population of cats and dogs.
Air Van Moving partnered with FrogBox Boise and sponsored a donation for auction of a 1 bedroom bundle from Frogbox. This gives the lucky bidder 25 Frogboxes, 1 Frogbox dolly and a delivery and pick-up.

In an ongoing effort to have our business Moving to Green we partnered with FrogBox Seattle to provide an eco-friendly alternative to the cardboard box. Then in summer 2011 FrogBox Boise opened its doors and once again we are partnered with them to provide our customers the best products to make their move GREEN.
This week we made our trucks OFFICIAL by placing FrogBox provider stickers on our Air Van Moving trucks.

Moving can be stressful. From choosing a mover to cleaning out and packing up all your stuff, the list of to do’s seems never-ending. Trying to balance that with also being eco-friendly can add to the frustration. Here are some great tips for a GREEN move that will save you some GREEN and might actually make you some GREEN.
Selling your home:
In today’s world, technology has made it easier to be GREEN.
- Take digital images of your home and post them online and save paper by not printing out expensive fliers.
- Post a QR code on your For Sale Sign, so those with a smartphone can get direct access to your home’s website.
Tackling the whole house can be a daunting task. Take one room at a time and apply this same process.
Create 4 areas:
- Keep: Items ready to pack.
- Donate: A great way to recycle items that you no longer use.
- Sell: A great way to make some GREEN before your move. Use sites like Craig’s List or Ebay or have a garage sale.
- Trash/Recycling: Recycle as much as possible.
Typically, cardboard boxes are used to move your belongings from one house to the next. Now there is a company in town that provides you with the eco-friendly alternative to the cardboard box. FrogBox provides a convenient and affordable service to those who are moving in Boise and the surrounding area. They deliver your FrogBoxes to your home, you pack and move and they pick up your boxes from your new home. On average, a cardboard box is used 2 times before being recycled. FrogBoxes can be used hundreds of times before being recycled. They also have recycled paper available for purchase. As an added bonus their trucks run on bio-diesel and they donate 1% of their gross profits to Frog Habitat Restoration.
In your quest for a green-conscious moving company, keep these questions in mind:
- What other steps are you taking to be more environmentally friendly?
Cleaning the home you have sold:
Time to Green Clean! Use Green cleaning products (available at most grocery stores). Save paper towels and use reusable towels that can be washed and re-used.
Once you have moved into your new home don’t forget to recycle all your packing materials!
