Japanese company Brandear has come up with an innovative service that lets the broken-hearted erase all remnants of their failed relationships. The ‘Heartbreak Box’ is a cardboard box that is specially designed for you to ship your former lover’s belongings in. It also helpfully contains a Heartbreak Guidebook, tissues and bubble wrap that will come in handy when sorting through your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend’s items.
For every ‘Heartbreak Box’ the company receives, it will donate 100 yen (around US$1) to an NGO that supports pregnant women and couples in developing countries. In addition, Brandear will conduct a formal appraisal of the items received and compensate you accordingly. For the jilted, this is a creative way to get closure, earn a bit of money, and do some good at the same time. Find out more about the ‘Heartbreak Box’ here.
