Environmental Advantages of Corrugated Cardboard Boxes

Our "Green by Design" approach focuses on designing every component of our corrugated boxes in an environmentally responsible manner--from the types and amount of materials used, to the processes employed in production, to the methods of transport and shipping.


Recycled Boxes

Our brown (kraft) corrugated boxes are 60% to 95% post-consumer waste, while white corrugated boxes are 30% to 70% post-consumer waste.


Recyclable Boxes

Even better news: the boxes we produce are 100% recyclable. This is a great aspect to promote to your end-customers right on the shipping boxes or in promotional material, so they know to recycle the boxes and that your company is eco-conscious.
