Corrugated boxes are everywhere we look—they are used to ship goods between manufacturers and suppliers, between suppliers and retailers, and between retailers and consumers. And between 2000 and 2005, American consumption of cardboard was up about 1.5 percent annually. US demand for corrugated and paperboard boxes is expected to rise 2.5% annually for the next three years.

From management of renewable resources and responsible manufacturing processes, to widespread recovery and recycling, corrugated packaging is widely regarded as the most environmentally friendly form of packaging available today.

Did you know that for every tree harvested, more than three trees are replanted resulting in over twelve million more acres of U.S. forests today than twenty years ago!

The review of the published literature related to life cycle assessment (LCA), carried out by The National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI), failed to conclusively demonstrate that recycled paper is overall more earth-friendly that virgin paper.

Why can't all corrugated boxes be made from 100% recycled material?

1) Strength: As fibers are recycled repeatedly, they degrade, losing strength especially in high humidity areas. Corrugated boxes can only be recycled five to seven times before the box’s cellulose fibers turn into sludge and can’t be made into new paper, at which point the box must be landfilled. Then virgin fibers must be added to the recycled pulp in order to build a viable box. (Many end users of recycled paper products complain of faded print, labels and tape not sticking, warping, porosity with suction cups and complete package failure in high humid environments.)

2) Supply: There's not enough recycled fiber to meet demand. At present, demand for recycled fiber in the U.S. actually outstrips the supply - recycled sources offer just 31 percent of the total fiber input. A recent study suggests that the paper supply in Canada and the United States would develop serious problems in a matter of days if the input of fresh fiber was eliminated.

3) Energy and Water Use: The paper and pulp industry is the third largest consumer of energy, using 11.5% of all energy in the industrial sector, and the largest industrial consumer of water in the United States.

4) Water Pollution: In addition to the chemicals used to process recycled pulp, the sludge from a corrugated box can leach inks, coatings and fillers into the ground, endangering wildlife and aquatic habitats.
