All cardboard boxes can be reused and recycled. This reuse of boxes and recycling of corrugated board means that less virgin material is required to make new corrugated board and boxes. This maximises the lifespan of the original material.
On average, 75% of corrugated boxes are recycled and it is possible to purchase cartons made entirely from recycled corrugated board.
There are several incentives to use recycled corrugated material. These include the reduced cost of packaging materials as recycled material generally cost less than virgin material.
We also believe that many consumers will base their purchasing habits on how eco-friendly a product appears to be, including the packaging they are shipped and displayed in.
