Vancouver Cardboard Box Manufacturer Shares the Ins and Outs of Recycling

VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – July 26, 2017) – Founded in 1991, Racer Boxes is a successful cardboard box manufacturer located out of Richmond. As a company that caters to clients in a range of industries, from food growers to chic box subscription services, Racer Boxes is proud to offer a product that’s allowing their clients to reduce waste and preserve a few trees.

The latest blog posted on the company website explores the process of recycling cardboard and just how common its use is. In fact, the blog claims that most boxes today are 70% to 90% recycled cardboard, and that’s great news for companies championing PR-friendly green policies. For more, go to:

The blog explains that recycling cardboard consists of roughly five steps: collection, sorting, shredding and pulping, decontamination, and finishing.

For example, “After sorting, the next step is shredding, followed by pulping. Shredding breaks down the cardboard paper fibres into minute pieces. Once it is finely shredded, it is mixed with water and chemicals to break down the paper, turning into a pulpy substance. New pulp, made from wood chips, is then added to the slurry to make the material stronger.”

As a material that’s both recyclable and biodegradable, cardboard is an affordable green packaging solution that anyone can feel good about using. In addition, Racer Boxes offers flexibility to customers with low, mid, or high volume requirements, all while maintaining affordable pricing and superior quality.
