Replace plastic packaging with cardboard

Cardboard packaging

Swapping plastic packaging for a cardboard alternative is a simple way to reduce the single-use plastic that you send into the world.

32% of the 78 million tons of plastic packaging produced annually is left to flow into our oceans.



  • Cardboard can be recycled or will biodegrade
  • It is a flexible and durable material that can be shaped to match your product
  • Relatively lightweight


  • Cardboard can have its own environmental impacts - look at responsible sourcing and transportation impacts
  • Recycling is dependent on local waste management systems
  • May require some creative design to fit your product

Making a difference

Corrugated cardboard has a recycling rate of around 84% in the UK, the highest of any type of packaging.
