Get to know Marty
Marty Metro is an eco-entrepreneur and successful CEO with a “if at first you don’t succeed” attitude… and a track record to prove it!
In 2002, well before the environmental movement took off as we know it, Metro launched Boomerang Boxes, a chain of eco-friendly retail stores that bought/sold USED moving boxes.. He had dreams of a national franchise and scaled the idea to four retail locations. But just 3 years in, it became clear his attempt was premature, undercapitalized and riddled with logistic flaws. In short, it was simply not “sustainable”. After 3 long years of massive losses, no profit and no income, Metro was forced to cease all operations, leaving himself (and his supportive wife) with not just an empty bank account, but $300,000+ of personal debt!
