12 Fun Things To Do With Cardboard Boxes

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

This feature is inspired by my brother in law's recent cardboard box castle, made with my niece for her school project.

Of course being in the business that we are we have access to plenty of waste boxes but if you are stuck you can call at local shops and ask if they have any used ones going spare ...

DIY stores are a good place to try.

On a more serious note as a company we reuse as many cardboard boxes and packaging items as we can to keep our waste down.
