Cardboard Boxes Will Have You Sleeping Like A Baby

July 09, 2013


Would YOU use a cardboard box as a crib for your baby?

We’re guessing the answer is, “no!”

While the idea of a box used as a baby bed might sound a bit zany to those of us in America, it might not be such a bad idea after all!

Here’s the skinny:

In Finland, expectant mothers are given a gift from the government: a cardboard box filled with diapers, clothing, bedding, bathing products, toys and a small mattress, according to the BBC. Many babies — regardless of the family’s socioeconomic background — will sleep on the small mattress within the four walls of the cardboard box.

Perhaps the best part of all is that many say the care packages — cardboard crib, included — may be a contributing factor to Finland having one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world.

Could packaging products be any more AMAZING??!!?? They not only protect goods, but they save lives, as well!
