When you choose to live a more sustainable life, you take a pledge to keep and use items until they can't be used any more. Wine boxes or wine crates made of wood are often used for shipping wine and then discarded. The wine box design is one of the most classic consumer packages ever created. These boxes can be easily upcycled and given a new purpose. Liquor stores and wineries often reserve the wooden boxes for packing full cases, but many are more than happy to give them away if you ask.
