Did you ever wonder whether corrugated boxes are recyclable — or where they come from in the first place?

The fact is, corrugated boxes are far more Earth-friendly than you might imagine.

In this video, Georgia-Pacific, one of North America's leading suppliers of containerboard and corrugated containers, explains why.

For example, GP Corrugated’s fiber sourcing practices are certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Chain of Custody Standard, so they support sustainable forestry. Most of the company’s containerboard mills are located in areas with abundant timber resources, which means a shorter supply chain and therefore less fuel use.

Corrugated packaging is also recyclable. In fact, corrugated is the most recycled packaging material, with a recovery rate of more than 90 percent.

Georgia-Pacific mills use a mix of virgin and recycled fiber to make containerboard, which is then converted into different types of corrugated packaging.
