SUSTAINABILITY

We’re here to help companies reduce their impact on the environment by making it easy to reuse cardboard boxes.

How We Do It

The process of recycling cardboard requires vast amounts of energy and water and produces large volumes of CO2 emissions. Cardboard cannot be re-processed with 100% recycled content. This means a proportion of new paper will still be needed, resulting in the destruction of even more trees.

The Problem With Recycling

Using circular economy principles we divert used cardboard boxes away from traditional recycling, placing them back into the supply chain for a second use.

Traditionally cardboard boxes are manufactured, used and then recycled back into more cardboard boxes.

Recycling will always be necessary for boxes that can no longer be used. It’s a sensible way of reprocessing unwanted packaging and prevents huge volumes going to landfill. But does all packaging need to be recycled?

The Reuseabox Model

By diverting used cardboard boxes away from the recycling process we can delay this environmentally damaging process.

When you choose Reuseabox, you make a conscious decision to choose packaging that supports a more circular economy. By prolonging the life of these boxes, we keep cardboard in use for longer, reduce waste and protect our natural resources.

The Science

We love what we do but we also wanted to prove the environmental benefits of our unique Reuse Model. So we worked with independent environmental consultants and Dr Lan Qie from Lincoln University. The team studied the environmental impact of reuse over recycling and came back with some impressive statistics!

Unique Carbon Footprint Tool

Our research enabled us to create the first ever carbon footprint tool that compares reuse to recycling or buying new cardboard boxes. This means you can find out exactly how much carbon you have saved by choosing to Reuseabox, along with lots of other interesting data.

If you’re an existing customer, contact us today for your FREE Carbon Footprint Report and find out how you’ve helped the environment by choosing to reuse.

Plant A Tree

Planting trees is one of the best ways to reduce global carbon emissions. So we’ve decided to partner with One Tree Planted. Each time you place an order for cardboard boxes, we’ll plant a tree on your behalf.

Trees are planted in areas of the world that need them the most. Many of the projects focus on rebuilding forests after natural disasters and deforestation. Projects also support a wide range of biodiversity. Without trees, countless animals, birds and insects would have nowhere to call home.
