Recycling cardboard boxes

We use cardboard boxes

for shipping our products and by recycling these boxes, you can help cut down on waste and benefit the environment. Our delivery boxes are 100% recyclable. Moreover, these boxes are approved by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), which helps prevent the use of illegally harvested timber. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home. They also work to improve forest management worldwide, and create an incentive to follow best social and environmental practices.

Currently, about 70 percent of cardboard boxes shipped commercially are recovered for recycling.

Once a cardboard box is wet, it can be extremely difficult to recycle. So make sure that you collect and separate your cardboard stream from liquids. Keep the boxes in a dry, protected area.

Flatten cardboard boxes so that you can fit more recyclables into your bin.

The best thing you can do before tossing your cardboard box in a recycling stream is to try and reuse it for storage or shipping.

 

We can actively contribute to achieve a 100% recycling rate by recycling glass bottles and jars.

Recycling glass bottles

and jars is not complicated, you only need to follow these simple steps.

First, do your best to not break glass bottles, as there is no market for recycling broken glass. You can easily peel off the label and remove the plastic pump or lid. Next you need to rinse out the bottles and jars.

As the final step, take used glass bottles and jars to the nearest bottle bank or throw them into the container dedicated for glass.

Depending on the end use and local processing capabilities, you might need to separate them into different colours.

In addition, you can also recycle and repurpose glass bottles in other ways by using them in crafts.
