Corrugated boxes: Future of packaging to protect the Planet
In the current ongoing crisis, corrugated boxes have played an important role in delivering essentials such as food and pharma products all across the world. With e-commerce on the rise during the lockdowns, there has been a surge in the demand of corrugated boxes and packaging. However, they are the most coveted form of packaging right now mainly, due to the fact that they are recyclable and environmental-friendly.
Corrugated packaging is different than plastics, and it has a tremendous end-of-life success story. The recovery rate for old corrugated containers (OCC) has hovered near 90 percent for the past seven years making corrugated the most recycled packaging material in the US.
Made from a renewable resource, reusable and recyclable corrugated packaging comes full circle every day. From efficient use of managed forest lands to sustainable practices during board and box manufacture to high recovery rates that put fiber back into our system, corrugated packaging is truly circular by nature.
With rising awareness about sustainability and circularity as well as a growing number of campaigns to ban plastic waste, there is a pressure on companies to find alternatives for all kinds of plastic packaging. A huge amount of the plastic produced throughout the world goes unrecycled, and tightening its rules on the products it accepts, recycling companies are scrambling to find new markets for their reclaimed refuse. Furthermore, top companies from Apple to Walmart are making commitments to go plastic free and to find alternatives solutions to single use plastics for packaging/
For a brighter tomorrow and a greener planet, corrugated packaging is one of the most acceptable alternative
