Recycled Shipping Boxes: How Brandable Box Stays True To Values
Over 30% of all U.S. garbage is made up of packaging. Yep, all U.S. garbage. That’s a massive number that can’t be ignored by businesses or consumers.
Hence why sustainability is a core value to the Brandable Box team. We’re trying to debunk the myth that just because something is recycled products are lower quality products. In fact, our boxes are the same high-quality shipping boxes as our competitors... except our boxes are made from 100% recycled materials. The best part? they cost exactly the same. Sustainable packaging doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. We’re dedicated to making it zen.
Our team is doing our part and we want to help your business do your part. We’re sticking to our core values to help bring that 30% down. Here’s a little more on why Brandable Box is so dedicated to sustainability and how we keep it up through recycled shipping boxes.
Why is Brandable Box so dedicated to helping protect the environment?
The demand for shipping boxes has exploded in recent years as eCommerce continues to rise. But what comes with more shipping boxes needed for eCommerce? More waste. Corrugated boxes are one of the easiest products to recycle, but not all cardboard is. Why not? Brandable Box strives to lead the packaging industry as one of the few companies that provides 100% recycled shipping boxes.
We pride ourselves on the fact that we’re one of the few companies in the industry that can truly say our shipping boxes are made from 100% recycled materials. But selling recycled boxes isn’t just good for the planet. It’s good for you, as a consumer of our brand, and it helps you win on price. With recycled materials, we’re able to keep costs low for you, keep your wallets full and do our part in eliminating waste..
Our team is backed by Pratt Industries -- America's 5th largest corrugated packaging company and the world's largest, privately-held 100% recycled paper and packaging company. We’re proud to be a part of a company that strives to help protect the environment on a daily basis.
How are our boxes so sustainable?
Figuring out how you can help protect the environment can seem like a daunting task. How do you make an impact through your business when it seems like an impossible feat? That’s where making a small change within your business can make a big difference.
When you switch to shipping boxes made completely from recycled materials, you’ll be saving more than just trees. In fact, if your company uses 1,000 recycled shipping boxes from Brandable Box it saves 19 trees, over 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 1 ton of CO2, and over 5,000 KWHS of electricity. And that’s just one order of boxes. Imagine the difference that can be made when one company uses our boxes for years.
But how is that possible? It all comes down to the way we produce our boxes. Every year our parent company, Pratt Industries, diverts 2.2 million tons of waste paper, other recyclable materials and waste-to-clean energy materials from the landfill. And holding true to core values, the parts that can’t be recycled are turned into fuel to help power the paper-making process. With four sustainable paper mills producing 100% recycled paper, they save over 70,000 trees a day when they provide paper to the box-making plants. That means our boxes are lightweight and sourced from completely sustainable materials.
Our team is proud to be a part of a company that strives every single day to produce environmentally-friendly shipping boxes and to disrupt the packaging industry with sustainable solutions. We’re committed to helping provide businesses of all sizes with recycled shipping boxes that will help make a difference. Is your business committed?
