Reuse of corrugated fibres
According to The Myth of Limited Fibre Life Cycles, the fibres that make up cardboard can be recycled more than 25 times with no significant loss in quality. Another recent study, Recyclability of Carton Board and Carton, confirmed these findings by concluding that carton can be recycled more than 25 times with little to no loss of integrity.
The industry continues to innovate to ensure sustainable, safe and hygienic packaging for the future. With reuse of fibres up to 25 times without loss of integrity, and with a competitive environmental footprint, corrugated packaging is a sustainable alternative to reusable plastic containers.
