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.

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!

    I have known all along that pizza boxes are not recyclable. This is a very creative and ingenious way of making them so! Thank you!

    This is something all pizza places should be using. Not oly is it a great way to reuse materials, find innovative ways to reduse waste but it goes further in that you will see fewe paper plates used by these same buisnesses. It is a win win for everyone!
