Did you know that pizza boxes are notrecyclable due to the grease from the pizza that gets into thecardboard? While this may seem like a useless bit of trivia, it is not,as it can become your greatest and most powerful marketing tool forpersuading pizza shop owners and local merchants to partake in a pizzabox advertising and recycling program.
Here is how it works: Owners ofthe pizza shop get their pizza boxes for 50 percent of the regular costfor allowing local noncompeting merchants to advertise on the pizzabox, and this can potentially save them thousands of dollars each year.Local merchants that advertise on the pizza boxes receive low-costhighly effective advertising and the advertisement can be in the formof a cutout coupon featuring a discount for the merchant’s products andservices. Consumers still receive a great-tasting pizza, plus valuablediscount coupons that can be redeemed at local stores. Last, but notleast, the pizza box is partially recycled into coupons and gets arenewed lease on life, which in turn helps us all.
