On average, our corrugated boxes are approximately 2/3 recycled fibre and 1/3 virgin material. Corrugated cardboard has a recycling rate of 91% in the UK. This is the highest recycling rate of any type of packaging in the UK. As a direct result, every four months an area the size of Greater London is saved from landfill.
In our factory, every off-cut is fed, via a conveyor belt system, into an efficient semi-automatic baler for recycling. All our finished boxes are recyclable and our pallet exchange service allows us to cut down on wood wastage.
Trees feed our business so we like to look after them. We are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home.
All of our paper-based raw materials are purchased from suppliers that are FSC approved. As such we are helping to ensure that forests worldwide are well managed and sustainable, with trees being replanted and not depleted.
