What's the reason of recycle cardboard?
When cardboard breaks down in landfill it creates methane, a major greenhouse gas with the global warming capacity 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Cardboard is one of the easiest and most environmentally effective materials to recyclerecycle since the fibre in cardboard has already been processed. Therefore making cardboard products from recycled material, rather than virgin fibre, saves not only trees, but also large amounts of water (up to 99%less) and energy (up to 50% less). Manufacturing from recycle material also produces up to 90% less by-products such as chemical wastes.
For these reasons, it is important to recycleyour cardboard and whenever possible to buy paper and cardboard products with recycled content. For each kilogram of cardboard recycled, you save up to one kilogram of greenhouse gases.
