“LivingSmart is about the health and well-being of our homeowners as well as the planet, and that commitment is always expanding,” said Jeff Frankel, Division President, TRI Pointe Homes Northern California. “We have a steadfast passion for improving the quality of life for our homeowners and the ‘Think Outside the Box’ program helps us achieve that by reusing and recycling moving boxes to create less waste.”

The “Think Outside the Box” program was designed to help reduce the amount of waste associated with the moving process. To participate in the program, each new homeowner is given the location of the pick-up/drop-off point of the recycle station in their community to pick up boxes. Once the homeowners have used the boxes they’ll break them down and return them to the community recycle station for the next homeowner’s use.

“The ‘Think Outside the Box’ program is a simple but powerful way for homeowners to contribute to reducing the carbon footprint by using less materials and less waste. We’re excited to see how our buyers use it and the positive impacts it will have on our communities,” said Frankel.
