The words “barrel” and “scraping” might come to mind when I tell you this, but the lid of this knackered old shoebox has some good advice for life too.
I’m sure it’s only there as a point of corporate greenwashing, but you can’t knock the words when you take them at face value.
I decided to follow the “reuse” advice and use the shoebox to ship a stereo speaker I’d sold on eBay.
Something went wrong though and the customer returned it, so the box did double-duty by coming all the way back to me.
Even after all this, the box was not yet ready to disintegrate. So I used it to send five copies of my book to the legal deposit agency.
Here’s hoping they make it. Gulp. Godspeed, box!
