The Wonders Of Corrugated Board – It Ticks Every Box
Since their invention in 1894 by Henry Norris and Robert Thompson to replace wooden boxes, the corrugated box remains the most sustainable and cost effective way of protecting goods in transit.
An excellent choice of green packaging. Why ? Because corrugated board is easily recycled, in fact corrugated cardboard can be recycled up to ten times. All recycling centres and councils accept this material and it is now efficiently shredded, turned to pulp and turned back into usable board, 70 -90 % of corrugated board is now recycled. All our board is sourced from FSC Chain of Custody certified suppliers who use sustainable forests which since the 1950’s have been growing year on year.
