A Box Life

A cute idea for QR Codes sponsored by clothing firm Columbia as a recycling initiative

IT Strategy

A Box Life is a cute idea for QR Codes sponsored by clothing firm Columbia as a recycling initiative. Put a tag on a cardboard box so that when the box is reused you can track the 'life' of the box

By snapping the tag and providing your location data or entering the tracking code printed under the tag with your current location via a widget on the website, you update the box's current location so it can be tracked as it criss-crosses the USA.

Using the web widget you can also add some data about where the box came from to you, to build up a picture of the box's lifestream. Aaw. Bless.

I'd hate to be the one who had to log that the box has finally gone to the shredder in the sky.
