Consumers Will Cheer This Innovative Redesign of the Pizza Box

I bet you've cursed the pizza box.  I know I have, when I tried to shove it into the fridge and it didn't fit.

Here's the solution.  It's called the Green Box and looking at the demonstrations below, we can see that it solves more than the fridge problem.

The box top transforms into serving plates.


The bottom transforms into a fridge-friendly storage container.


They're also built to be 100% recycled, something my current container isn't.

Pizza shop owners, take note!
