From Companies that run trucks on bio-diesel to green packaging the moving industry has entered the green movement.  Here's some companies to check out:

Earth friendly moving http://earthfriendlymoving.com/ "a buck a box a week".  This company rents heavy duty stackable moving containers from recycled materials delivered to your door in trucks running on biodiesel. When you are done with them they'll pick them up.

Go Green Moving http://www.gogreenmoving.com/ runs its moving vans on biodiesel.

http://www.boxquest.com/  Find and Buy recycled and used boxes, packing material and more.  When last checked there were more than 125,000 recycled boxes for sale in California including 75 in Napa and 200 in Vacaville.

Boxes really take a lot of room and resources.  Good to hear about some alternatives to uhaul or penske.

Thanks for this info Cindy!

People may also want to give away their moving boxes (or request if they need them) on Freecycle or Craigs List as well.

If you're not familiar with Freecycle, I would encourage you to check it out - "recycling" at its finest!!!
