Three Reasons Why Plastic Shoe Boxes Are Better Than Cardboard Shoe Boxes

by GuestPoster on April 3, 2012

When you buy a new pair shoes, you are usually given a box in which you can carry the new shoes home, or carry the old shoes home where they can be disposed. When buying your new shoes, you may be asked to choose between having a plastic shoe box and a cardboard shoe box. In this article, I will discuss three reasons why plastic shoe boxes are better than cardboard shoe boxes.

Plastic Shoe Boxes Are Reusable

While it is true that cardboard shoe boxes can be used more than once, plastic shoe boxes can be reused over and over and over again. This is because plastic shoe boxes are designed to last for a long time, while disposable cardboard shoe boxes are designed for one-time usage. This means that plastic shoe boxes can be used for many different purposes. Many of these purposes just aren’t suited for cardboard boxes.

Plastic Shoe Boxes Stand Up More To Moisture

If you are going to be using the shoe boxes in environments that are not climate controlled, such as in a garage or an outbuilding, then you will be much better off by using plastic shoe boxes, because over time, cardboard shoe boxes will break down due to the effects of moisture. With plastic shoe boxes, and pretty much all things plastic, moisture is not a problem. On top of that, most plastic shoe boxes come with snap-on lids that seal the box and protect the contents from dirt, animals, and other undesirables.

Plastic Shoe Boxes Are Stronger Than Cardboard Boxes

Another thing to take into account is the fact that plastic shoe boxes are significantly stronger than cardboard boxes. This really comes into play if you intend to stack the boxes on top of each other. Most plastic shoe boxes are designed to be stacked on top of each other, as can usually be seen on the special designs of the lids. On the other hand, most cardboard boxes will eventually collapse under the weight of the boxes that are stacked on top of them, causing damage to the box as well as to the contents within the box. So, if you’re looking for boxes that are stackable so that you can use them in a space saving arrangement, then plastic shoe boxes are a much better storage option in their cardboard counterparts.

More strength, moisture resistance, and a longer lifecycle are three reasons why plastic shoe boxes are better than cardboard shoe boxes.
