Cardboard packaging is in high demand. As more companies move away from plastic packaging, manufacturers are reporting a shortage of pulp needed to make cardboard, leading to higher prices and extended lead times. So how can you cut out the lead times and ensure you have a reliable, affordable supply of cardboard packaging?
Common Problems When Ordering Cardboard Packaging
- Long lead times, making it difficult to cope with fluctuations in demand.
- Increasing prices due to high demand for cardboard.
Choose to Reuse for Packaging on Demand
At Reuseabox we help companies to reuse cardboard packaging. In industry cardboard is often used only once before being sent off for recycling. But cardboard should not be treated as a single use material. Most cardboard packaging can be reused a few times before it is ready to be recycled.
If you use cardboard layer pads or dividers for your business, switching to once used stock will save you time and money. We hold all our once used cardboard sheets and dividers in stock, which means you can order as and when required and even have your order dispatched the same day.
We provide cardboard sheets to fit a euro or standard pallet. Take a look at our most popular once used cardboard layer pads:

Better for the Planet
Opting for once used packaging is the most sustainable way of packaging your products. We wanted to find out exactly how good reuse is, so we worked with environmental consultants to develop a Carbon Footprint Tool that measures the benefits of reuse over recycling or buying new cardboard packaging. This allowed us to come up with some impressive statistics!
For every tonne (6.5 pallets) of cardboard that is reused,
- 5 Trees are saved
- 21,578 Litres of Water is saved
- 4,386 KW/H of Energy is saved
- 5 Tonnes of CO2 is saved
Planting trees is one of the best ways of tackling climate change. For every order placed through Reuseabox, we also plant a tree on your behalf.
