The Sustainability of Carboard


This post was most recently updated on May 12th, 2022

Cardboard packing boxes are ubiquitous in the packaging industry and are more widely used within the commercial sector. But cardboard packaging is often considered an inferior and unsustainable material.

This is not the case. Today, cardboard storage boxes are one of the most sustainable forms of packaging available on the market. As well as being a cost-effective alternative, the material used comes from renewable sources and in many cases, is made from a high percentage of recycled material as well.

As one of the best and most environmentally friendly solutions, cardboard packing boxes are the perfect solution for companies and businesses to improve their brand image whilst also lowering costs.

Advantages of cardboard packaging

With an array of opportunities available for businesses to improve their image, reduce their impact and support environmentally friendly practices, one simple solution is to consider sustainable packaging options.

Cardboard packaging is used to preserve almost any type of good and holds several advantages over other packaging options:

·         More cost-effective

·         Biodegradable

·         Smaller carbon footprint

·         Strong and durable

·         Re-usable

·         Readily available

·         Versatile

At Perfection Box, all of our bespoke and standard boxes are made from recycled materials, designed to offer both excellent strength and durability. The majority of our boxes are also constructed from 100% recycled cardboard and we’re proud to use recycled materials over and over again.

Cost-effective solution

Cardboard moving boxes and other storage boxes are a more cost-effective packaging solution than other alternatives, such as metals, wood, and glass.

With a cheaper manufacturing cost and lightweight features, bespoke cardboard box options are used widely in practically every industry to suit any need.


At Perfection Box, our bespoke cardboard boxes are 100% recyclable and biodegradable. Cardboard decomposes quickly and in humid or wet conditions, this decomposition accelerates. When cardboard packaging is recycled, it can be used once again to create new packaging, such as bespoke postage boxes or office supply boxes.

When companies use recycled cardboard in other endeavours, it uses over 75% less water and almost 50% less electricity to make, saving further energy costs and contributing positively to environmental factors.

Smaller carbon footprint

Cardboard packing boxes are one of the materials that have the least environmental impact. As well as being biodegradable and possessing the ability to be recycled, producing cardboard boxes compared to alternative options results in a reduction of CO2 emissions.

With consumers becoming more and more eco-friendly and aware of carbon footprints, switching to cardboard alternatives made from renewable sources will improve your brand image and largely make you feel better about your contribution to environmentally friendly practices. It’s in our best interest to switch to recycled materials and contribute positively to the longevity of our resources.

When manufacturing any form of cardboard storage boxes, it’s less harmful to produce, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 60% compared to the manufacturing of other materials, preserving our planet’s natural resources.

Strong and durable

Despite their lightweight nature, cardboard boxes are actually strong and durable and can support heavy loads.

With the option for bespoke cardboard boxes to be manufactured from corrugated double-walled cardboard, they have the capacity to hold up to 16kg and are extra thick to ensure goods are kept safe and secure.

At Perfection Box, we offer a variety of cardboard storage boxes, from bottle boxes to bespoke postage boxes, all our boxes are sustainable, strong, recyclable and biodegradable. You can browse our previous blog on ‘Types of Packaging’ here.
