It’s important to know the key differences between cardboard boxes and corrugated boxes. Cardboard is a heavy-duty paper stock that’s thicker and more durable than regular paper. Cereal boxes, gift boxes, and bakery boxes are all great examples of cardboard packaging.

Corrugated board is made of three layers of brown kraft paper. It contains ridges and grooves, which promote strength and flexibility. This makes corrugated boxes great for withstanding environmental stress and transporting delicate items.

Why use corrugated boxes?

Strength: Corrugated boxes are a lot stronger than cardboard. They can withstand pressure and resist crushing. Corrugated boxes can also retain their durability when stacked on top of one another, which is a benefit during storage.

Size: Corrugated boxes come in many sizes, allowing you flexibility in choosing the best box for your product. They’re also lightweight and can be easily broken down.

Eco-friendly: Corrugated boxes are great for the environment because they’re made with 100% renewable materials.

Corrugated boxes are widely used today. With the growth of e-commerce, finding the best shipping solution for your products is more important than ever.

While there is a perception that plastic grocery bags are environmentally unfriendly, this is not necessarily true and they have many advantages for retailers and consumers


Many consumers find plastic bags are a better option than paper bags.

While there is an increase in the use of reusable cloth bags, plastic shopping bags have two big advantages:

  • They are more durable than paper bags and are less prone to tearing, easier to carry, and are far more useful in bad weather.
  • They are also reusable as trashcan liners, storage bags, or for picking up after the dog. Plastic bags last longer and can be repurposed, unlike paper bags.


Retailers have always preferred plastic shopping bags because they are more cost-effective, easier to use, and easy to store. Plastic bags are available in bulk for less than one cent. Paper bags are typically 5 cents or more per bag while reusable cloth bags are even more expensvie. This means that plastic bags are more effective on business profit margins.

Not to mention, plastic bags are faster and easier to open and pack which can help with efficiency in busy retail stores. Plastic bags take up less space to store and weigh far less.
