Cardboard is one of the most commonly recycled items, residential or commercial and that is because over 90% of all products shipped in the United States are packaged in cardboard. The total square footage of all the cardboard packaging totals more than 400 billion square feet.

Recycling cardboard not only helps the environment but also is easier to produce than making new cardboard from raw materials.

While it seems like a small exchange, when 1 ton of cardboard is recycled, it saves over 45 gallons of oil and pound for pound, recycled cardboard takes about 25% less energy to produce than new cardboard. These figures make it seem pretty straightforward about how economical and beneficial recycling cardboard but yet large amounts of cardboard go un-recycled each and every year.

Consumers and businesses alike can do a better job with cardboard.
