The Environmentally Friendly Choice Plastic Vs Cardboard Packaging

The Environmentally-friendly Choice: Plastic Vs Cardboard Packaging

When it comes to environmentally-friendly choices for packaging, it’s a difficult decision between plastic and cardboard. Let’s see how environmentally-friendly both materials are.

Normally people would opt for cardboard over plastic due to its sustainability. However, it is noteworthy that cardboard is much less efficient because it can be easily ripped, worn, sagged or damaged. The common causes are due to forces of nature such as humidity, moisture, insects, etc. compared to the durability and longevity of plastic. 

Furthermore, cardboard can contribute to global deforestation, and it actually leaves a bigger footprint during transportation. As a matter of fact, plastic generates 80 percent less solid waste and uses 40 percent less energy during production compared to paper bags.

That being said, Easycrates would be a perfect and environmentally-friendly solution – reusability and durability. Our crates are extremely strong and can be reused hundreds of times. When the crates are returned after each relocation – we will inspect, clean and sanitise each individual crate, ready for our next customer to use. And the best part is, at the end of its lifespan, it will be recycled to ensure minimal impact on the environment. 

Start moving and storing the environmentally-friendly way with our Easycates!
