How we started
The idea for ZippGo was conceived while our company’s founder, Ash, was managing an organic grocery home delivery business. His company used reusable green plastic boxes to deliver fruit and vegetables around the Bay Area. During this time, Ash moved a couple of times and found that using the same green boxes was an excellent solution for packing and transporting his belongings.
After merging his company with another organic home delivery company in 2008, Ash embarked on yet another move within San Francisco and, because he no longer had access to the green boxes, he was forced to buy and use cardboard boxes. While taping and moving the cardboard boxes was no fun, what Ash dreaded the most was the daunting task of having to dispose of all that cardboard.
He didn’t feel right about having to throw away new cardboard boxes after using them only once, and he was sure other people felt the same way. What a waste of our Earth's natural resources! He knew there had to be a better way.
Since 2009, ZippGo has delivered more than half a million re-usable plastic boxes to homes and offices throughout the Bay Area. Our small local business continues to grow as more people realize the benefits of our economical, convenient and eco-friendly alternative to cardboard. We're on a mission to change the way people pack and move, and we are grateful for your support!
