Key finding

100% recycled cardboard

has limitations for boxing and shipping products.

"When you fold recycled cardboard, it splits in half down the seam. So there are limitations for making boxes that have enough rigidity for shipping products. ...because of the splitting edges problem, we’d have to coat it - and the coatings are usually plastic. So we go for FSC certified material (for boxing products) because at least that is from a renewable source."
