Reduce & reuse

Cardboard boxes can easily be reused for shipping, keeping them in use for longer, reduce the impacts associated with shipping and encourage consumers to actively engage in the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle concept.

Columbia Sportswear's 'A Box Life' (1) program utilises QR code stickers to enable users to take part in its journey, while highlighting the long-term value of the product. The program is open to any company that ships a product and would like to participate.
