BLOG - Recycled cardboard, an ally in sustainability
Do you know the sustainable contribution of choosing recycled cardboard for packaging?
There are several socio-environmental benefits to be gained from the use of recycled cardboard:
- Saving of natural resources
- Lower environmental impact
- Creation of green jobs, through reprocessing centres and harvesters.
- Generating the habit of recycling
In the case of Papelera del Sur's cardboard, it has a composition of 85% recycled fiber, transforming post-consumer packaging into quality goods for the packaging industry. The 15% of virgin fiber is obtained from forests managed under chains of custody, which guarantee the responsible use of resources, thus closing the entire chain in a sustainable way.
Recycled cardboard is a biodegradable and eco-friendly alternative material without incurring extra costs.
Now that you know the benefits, what materials would you choose to develop your packaging?
