Greif paper packaging is a net-positive recycler. In simple terms, we recycle more than we make! It helps that most of our paper packaging is made from a renewable and reclaimed source – old corrugated containers. In other words, your old pizza box!

When cardboard is recycled, it is first collected and sorted by recyclers. It is then broken down into small pieces and pulped, which turns it into a slurry that is then used to create new cardboard products. The process of recycling cardboard can be energy-intensive, but it is definitely worth it since it can help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Additionally, it can help reduce the amount of natural resources needed to make new cardboard products.

Recycling cardboard helps the environment by reducing the amount of waste that is sent to landfills, as well as reducing the amount of resources needed to make new cardboard products.
