Media interest in the environment and the impact of packaging is increasing to the point now that paper based industries are forecasting significant growth as plastic use remains in the spotlight. Our own industry, corrugated packaging in line with this is expected to grow between 3-6% in the next few years.

We are proud to manufacture and supply products that have unsurpassed recycling rates  of over 80% compared to other packaging types in the UK.

However, there is no place for complacency and the focus here is very much on how we can remain sustainable, particularly when demand is increasing.

Why choose cardboard?

  • An 80% + recycling rate saves an area the size of Greater London going into landfill every four months.
  • It’s cost effective and light, and the options for bespoke design make it hugely adaptable to fit purpose.
  • The industry is heavily audited, especially in environmental terms.
  • Your customers and consumers are concerned about packaging waste.

Why choose us for your cardboard?

  • We have FSC® chain of custody certification. The Forestry Stewardship Council is a global, not for profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide.
  • We promote the use of recycled liners.
  • We have been designing, producing and delivering products from a natural resource for nearly 40 years.  Sustainability and waste reduction is integral to our business.
