What is Recycled Cardboard?

Many products offered by CiboWares, including our cup carriers, corrugated takeout boxes, and cup sleeves, are made from recycled cardboard. Biodegradable and compostable, this material is a wonderful eco-friendly option for businesses looking to reduce their impact on the environment. Keep reading to learn more about our recycled cardboard products.

The Recycling Process

First, recyclable cardboard is collected and taken to paper mills and other recycling facilities. The products are then sorted into two categories: boxboard, which refers to the thinner materials used in items like cereal boxes, and cardboard, the larger, thicker material used in packaging. Once sorted, cardboard materials are shredded into a pulp mixture and wood chips are added in order to help the product form.

The pulp then goes through filtering and de-inking processes in order to remove contaminants such as plastics, inks, and dyes. After this process, the cardboard is placed on a conveyor belt to dry.

Why Choose Recycled Cardboard?

By recycling cardboard products instead of simply throwing them out, businesses can reduce the amount of strain put on the environment and wastes found in landfills.
