Ecology at Organic Poland
Our love of cardboard is due to 2. important reasons.
It is a strong, lightweight material and at the same time offers enormous possibilities for securing goods. Cardboard is also a highly ecological material.
We make every effort to ensure that the products we design
and we manufacture from corrugated cardboard were in 100% ecological.
In line with industry recommendations, to make the proposed solutions out of only one material. Of cardboard precisely.
Cardboard and Segregation and Recycling
The degree to which waste is recycled has a major impact on the environment.
Recycling starts with proper segregation, and single-material packaging makes segregation very easy.
Cardboard can be recycled 5 to 7 times.
Cardboard is also the material that has the shortest decomposition cycle in the environment. It is a cycle that lasts no more than 2-3 months, which is impressive when compared to the periods typical of plastic.
Cardboard that is no longer recyclable does not necessarily have to end up in a landfill - it can be burned in a waste incinerator and become a source of energy.
Cardboard packaging does not have to be disposable
Although cardboard packaging is often regarded as disposable packaging, it is becoming increasingly common to reuse boxes, pallets or cardboard dividers several times. Another interesting corrugated cardboard product that can be reused several times is the corrugated cardboard IBC. The stronger the packaging, the more packaging cycles can be handled with one container.
Paperboard and Carbon Footprint
Another advantage of cardboard packaging is that it is lightweight, which significantly reduces weight.
The lower weight in turn reduces fuel consumption and this results in a lower carbon footprint.
a Elimination of Non-Environmental Materials
Cardboard, thanks to its properties, is ideal for eliminating less environmentally friendly materials, heavier materials or more expensive materials.
Cardboard is a favourable alternative to any polystyrene shapes or wooden packaging. It is also a great option
for all furniture or joinery fillings.
Cardboard has excellent insulating and sound-absorbing properties, which significantly broadens the range of applications for this material.
Cardboard and the Threat to Forests
The paper used to make cardboard is produced from recycled paper and wood mainly from periodic firebreaks. The production of cardboard packaging, contrary to some myths, is not a threat to forest areas - neither to the number of trees nor their volume. The paper industry uses rabbits. Most of this tree comes from sustainable cultivation carried out to FSC or similar standards.
