Cardboard boxes are made from recovered paper and/or trees that are continuously replanted to ensure a sustainable supply.
Recycled box fibers are reused at least seven times to make new products.1
Every ton of paper that is recovered saves 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
With the holidays upon us and online shopping expanding, Americans will soon find stacks of cardboard boxes (also known as corrugated boxes) outside their doors. Corrugated boxes are strong, convenient and cost-effective, which is why they are the preferred packaging material for shipping presents around the holidays and all year long.
But ho, ho, hold on a second! What do you do with all of boxes once the gifts have been taken out and exchanged? Just like that sweater or book you regifted, they can be turned into something wonderful for someone else if you recycle them.
Recycling corrugated boxes is easy because they were designed to be recycled, often contain recycled content and are already the most-recycled packaging material. So how do you do it?
