Why Corrugated?

Most boxes and cartons manufactured in Canada are now 100% recycled material, made completely from old boxes and other used paper material collected from the back of factories, supermarkets and office buildings and from residential Blue Box programs. However, the paper fibres they were originally made from came from a tree somewhere – and trees are a renewable resource.

By law, every hectare of commercial forest that’s harvested in Canada must be successfully regenerated, either through direct seeding or naturally. Currently the harvest and re-growth of Canada’s forests is in balance, with an average of over 1,000 new seedlings planted every minute.
