Todd,
I addition what people responded, I can only add that plastic "getting older" over the time and box sharp corners create safety concerns.

Subject: [RM] Another Question From The CEO...
To: [log in to unmask]

I got an email from our CEO this morning asking if we should "consider 
transferring all the materials from the standard cardboard boxes into plastic 
boxes, which would be more resistant to water/infestation."

I have never heard of any wide use of plastic boxes due to the added cost. It 
appears plastic boxes run roughly $19/box compared to $1.50-ish for your 
standard box.

Assuming your boxes are in a suitable storage facility with industry 
recommended shelving, fire suppression and regular pest control, transferring 
all contents to plastic boxes seems excessive.

Is anyone using plastic boxes for any or all of their physical records? If so, 
please share why you made the switch.

Thanks,

Todd Johnson, CRM, ERMm
