EcoBox Proud of Local Women’s Race Alignment

EcoBox, the complete, ecologically responsible moving solution, is proud to have partnered with the annual Johannesburg SPAR Women’s Challenge which took place on 8th October at Mark’s Park Sports Club. EcoBox provided its durable, recyclable boxes to the race organisers for the packing and transporting of over 13 000 goodie bags from the Irene Homes contracts centre, where the goodie bags were packed, to the race venue at Marks Park Sports Club in Emmarentia.


EcoBox is a complete, ecologically responsible moving solution. Their tough, waterproof, green plastic boxes are 100% recyclable, and can be re-used over 400 times before being recycled again. Their offering is available through both their online store and their retail outlet in Bellville, Cape Town. Along with their green plastic boxes, EcoBox has a wide variety of quality packaging products on offer – from bubble-wrap, wrapping paper and corrugated cardboard cartons, to cardboard storage boxes.


Ordering from EcoBox online is a simple three step process. Simply order your boxes and packing material at, and EcoBox will deliver your order to your home or office at a time convenient to you, at any location nationwide. Once you have moved and unpacked, EcoBox will collect the boxes and return them to the warehouse for future use. All packaging material purchased can also be returned to EcoBox or dropped off at the EcoBox shop for recycling.


Having already sponsored the Pretoria leg of the nationwide SPAR Women’s Challenge races which took place on 5th August, EcoBox Business Development Manager, Xander van Biljon, said that the sponsorship of the 2017 SPAR Women’s Challenge race has shaped up to be a long-term partnership. “The experience of the SPAR Women’s Challenge events that we have has been phenomenal. These races attract an astounding number of participants and it all ties to a great cause that is unique to each race. This is really an inspiring event to be a part of.”


EcoBox is committed to being kind to the environment and aims to harness every opportunity to showcase the brand and the diversity of uses for its green box and packing solutions. According to van Biljon, this year’s theme for the Johannesburg race, #ShowYourCare was a perfect fit to EcoBox’s mission.


“This was the perfect chance to show Johannesburg that EcoBox cares – for the environment and for supporting great local events that honour South Africa’s women and contribute towards a good cause,” says van Biljon in reference to the fact that the Johannesburg race benefited Reach for Recovery, a local breast cancer awareness and patient outreach organisation. “By making every race entrant aware of the EcoBox offering we hope that everyone can see that using EcoBox as an on-going way to show that they care for the environment.”


In furthering their commitment to the environment, 1% of the rental fee on all EcoBox’s boxes is donated to Food & Trees for Africa. This organisation plants and grows trees and vegetables, often in disadvantaged areas in order to ensure food security and environmental sustainability.
