# [texhax] \usebox in environment to save text for future use

I expect the following code to define the \mybox within the
environment info for later use, but it does not work. The use of lrbox
environment seem restricted to the info environment only. How to get
around this?

\documentclass{article}

\newsavebox{\mybox}
\newenvironment{info}{\begin{lrbox}{\mybox}}{\end{lrbox}}

\begin{document}

\begin{info}
This is some text.
\end{info}

\usebox{\mybox}

\end{document}
