How cardboard moving boxes can help young homeless

A youth homelessness charity Depaul UK has launched a new business, selling cardboard boxes to home movers.

Proceeds will go to helping young homeless people off the streets, while the enterprise aims to capture a lucrative share of the UK & rsquo;s multi-million pound house-moving cardboard box market.

Depaul UK CEO Martin Houghton-Brown said: & ldquo;There is a real and often distressing association between cardboard boxes and those sleeping rough. The launch of the Depaul Box Company flips that association to a positive one.

& ldquo;No one should have to make a cardboard box their home, and buying our cardboard boxes should ensure nobody has to. & rdquo;

If you would like to pass the information on to any of your own home movers, the Depaul Box Company sells cardboard boxes at & pound;30 per pack of ten, & pound;40 per pack of 20 and & pound;60 per pack of 30.

Packs are available at
