Benefits Of Recycling Cardboard
Recycling cardboard, the most common and widely used scrap material, is one of the best ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Cardboard is a renewable resource that can be recycled infinitely, making it an environmentally-friendly option for packaging.
Cardboard boxes are typically made up of three layers: corrugated fiberboard (fluted paper) as the outer layer, linerboard as the middle layer, and a mixture of fiberglass and clay in between. When recycled, corrugated fiberboard becomes cardboard boxes again. The same goes for liner board, which becomes more sheets of paper; and foam board becomes more foam board.
Recycling cardboard saves energy resources and reduces pollution because it takes less energy to make new products from recycled materials than it does to make new ones from scratch.
Recycling cardboard is a great way to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills and help keep our planet clean. But did you know there are other benefits to recycling cardboard? Here are just some of them:
1) It’s Better For The Environment
Cardboard is made from natural fibers and paper, which means it can be recycled multiple times without losing its strength or quality. When you recycle, you’re reducing the need for natural resources like wood and paper, which means less deforestation and fewer trees being cut down. Recycling also reduces pollution, since less energy is needed to create new products from scratch.
2) It Helps Create Jobs
When you recycle cardboard, it can be turned into something new—for example, furniture or packaging materials. This means there will be more jobs available in these industries! The more we recycle, the more jobs there will be for people who work in these sectors of the economy.
3) You Can Help Your Local Economy
When your community recycles its cardboard instead of throwing it away, everyone benefits because this reduces costs associated with garbage pickup fees paid by taxpayers each year (which equals about $60 billion per year nationwide).
