Custom Boxes Reports Millennials Significantly Influence Purchasing Decisions

Companies need to support causes supported by millennials, such as the environment, and corrugated cardboard boxes help them to do so, announces Custom Boxes


Sydney, NSW -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2014 -- According to, 50 percent of millennials prefer to buy brands which support a specific cause, and this becomes of great importance when one realizes this audience influences purchasing decisions which total $500 billion every year. Many millennials express concern about the environment and global warming. Companies wishing to show their support for the environment through the use of green products often turn to corrugated cardboard boxes.

"Corrugated cardboard boxes benefit the environment in a number of ways. First and foremost, corrugated cardboard boxes may be reused and recycled. In fact, one box may be used eight times before it goes to the recycle bin! Often these boxes are made from post-consumer recycled materials, another benefit to the planet," Takis Valasidis, spokesperson for Custom Boxes, declares.

Boxes of this type tend to be very versatile, making this the perfect choice for odd shaped items. Consumers most likely have received items in the mail which are much smaller than the box they are shipped in. The empty space tends to be filled with shipping peanuts or other padding. When custom boxes are used, there is less need for this type of padding and less cardboard is wasted.

"Clients choose custom boxes as they come in a variety of sizes and styles. Clients find they may choose from standard or pallet boxes, narrow styles, or flat pack versions. Other options include Maltese cross styles and square tubes. Each client retains control over the dimensions of their boxes, the material used, the grade of material, and the style. Clients find there is less waste when they have this much control over their packaging," Valasidis continues.

Manufacturers of bulky items, those in a pick and pack industry, and those offering odd shaped items benefit the most from using custom boxes. Clients save money as they aren't wasting capital on packing and filling supplies, because the box is perfectly sized. These packing and filling materials also take up valuable space in warehouses, space which may be used to store additional product.

"Consider making use of this option today. Custom Boxes develops unique solutions based on the needs of each client, and can supply short or long runs. Customers who opt to make use of these items find their logistics efficiency improves along with profits. Never settle for a standard box again. With the help of custom boxes, each client finds they can have the packaging they need to better their company," Valasidis promises.
