Donating Made Easy with the Newegg Give Back Box Program

Like many other people, I love getting cool electronics and toys in the mail.  Not just from blogging, but my husband and myself getting new hardware for our computers or new toys for our home. The problem with getting all these awesome things in the mail, however, is that we have boxes everywhere. Sure, we can bring the boxes to get recycled, but we have to physically being them ourselves since our trash company doesn’t have a recycling program. Don’t get me wrong, we do recycle when we can, but our trunks just aren’t big enough for some of these boxes. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a company that took advantage of all these boxes everywhere?

To my shock, one of my favorite companies came up with a solution to this program and it doesn’t just recycle the boxes, but allows people to reuse them and give back to those in need. Recently, Newegg joined forces with the non-profit “Give Back Box” to create one of the coolest charitable program ever. With Newegg’s Give Back Box program, Newegg customers get a pre-paid shipping label in their box and instructions on how they can send gently used clothes, shoes, and other items to those in need. This means you can get rid of last spring’s clothes, or your child’s outgrown clothes, put them in your Newegg box, and ship them off without ever leaving your home. Not only are you able to give to those in need, but the boxes are being reused and recycled once they are no longer usable, allowing everyone to give back!

As someone who loves to give back to the Earth and my community, I think Newegg’s Give Back box program is perfect for everyone.  Also, if you don’t have enough room in your box or didn’t receive a shipping label, you can go to their site and print out a label. As a long-time loyal Newegg customer, I am delighted that one of my favorite companies isn’t just giving back, but helping their customers give back as well.

    What a fantastic idea! We do have easy recycling in the city where I live but I’d rather see an item reused before it has to be recycled. I’ll check it out.

    This is so neat. Thank you for sharing this with us!

    Great idea. I just don’t shop there so I don’t have any of their boxes.

    What a good idea. Companies always send items in a box that’s too big and has those mailing labels all over it. I recycle the boxes after scraping off my shipping info, which takes time. So, right now, I have several boxes sitting that need to be broken down and taken out.

    I love this idea. I wish other companies *ehem, Amazon* would do this so that I wouldn’t have so many boxes.

    This is nothing short of genius and it really makes me hope other companies take note and adapt a similar program soon! I have found a few great deals through Newegg over the years.

    That is a great idea!! I love this program!

    My community does have a recycling program but I think that this is a great idea to help and encourage people to donate items to charity and to recycle the boxes too.

    Wow that’s amazing! Everyone company needs to start doing this! I doubt they will but they should take example and start making chances

    So you can only reuse the boxes that they send you when you buy something? Is that right? I don’t understand how that helps with reusing other boxes. And you have to give away your stuff for the box to be reused? That’s a rip-off in my opinion but I guess it helps somewhat.

    Christina, yes, it is used for people who buy products for them and they pay for the shipping. It uses the boxes and the items you pack inside are given to a charity. I believe some months it is goodwill and others local charities in California.

    Hi Sarah

    Thank you so much for liking our movement.

    You can go to the website at http://www.givebackbox.com and print a shipping label for free. And simply find an existing box at home, pack it with your donation, seal and stick shipping label and ship. As simple as that.

    Help spread the word and tell your friends. Lets change the world together and let no box be left behind :)

    Hi Christina

    We are trying to make sure boxes do not go to landfill and at the same time help millions of people in need. We all have so much unwanted items at home which we never use. They also eventually find themselves to landfill.

    You can also go to http://www.givebackbox.com and print a shipping label with just one click. You can then use any box you have at home to donate items you no longer need or want. Simple as that.

    Thank you for helping us to change the world.
