Our Top 5 Shipping Boxes for Sustainable Companies

If you’re looking for sustainable packaging, now is the perfect time to embrace reusable packaging options. Reusable packaging is low cost and better for the environment. When you reuse a product just once, you half the energy and raw materials needed to make the product and you also half the emissions produced in the process.

Cardboard boxes are often the preferred packaging for shipping goods. They are strong and durable and can be recycled after use. But did you know cardboard boxes are also a great reusable packaging option?

When you choose to reuse cardboard boxes, your packaging has a lower carbon footprint and ultimately saves trees. Keeping materials in use for longer is a key concept of the circular economy as it gives our natural systems time to regenerate. In the case of cardboard boxes, which require pulp from trees, even if we were to plant new trees, these trees would take 30 years to mature before they can start absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. This is why it is critical we protect trees by reusing materials such as cardboard and keeping them in use for as long as possible before they are recycled.
