Companies that ship products almost certainly have the need to purchase and use corrugated boxes. Corrugated boxes are made from Kraft paper in different paper weights to give strength to a carton. In a typical single-wall box there are 3 papers. An inside liner, a medium, and an outside liner make up the construction of corrugated boxes. All responsible business today are concerned with protecting the environment.  We want you to know that our boxes are made from 100% post-consumer fiber yet provide our customers the strongest products on the market.

Corrugated boxes provide a solution that not only returns waste back into the usable stream of packaging, but does it at no increase cost and no loss in performance. It is a perfect way (and just one of our ways) of going “green”.  Today recycled corrugated boxes have tested at the same strength as those of the normal fiber variety, and this is not limited to 200% board. Paper board combinations are available to create board tests from 150% to 350% board strengths.

Printing is also not an issue with 100% post-consumer cardboard boxes. Box converters print both gradient and screen printing onto recycled custom boxes, giving it the same look that you would expect from a printed custom corrugated box.

In most cases there is no difference in cost between normal fiber corrugated boxes and 100% post-consumer recycled corrugated boxes. Check out our corrugated boxes and many of our other polyethylene products today. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to assist you in any manner possible.
