3 Advantages Cardboard Boxes Have Over Plastic Boxes
A cat contemplating whether to keep or throw away a cardboard box.

Whether you’re getting ready for a big move or putting things into storage, you’ll probably run into the question of whether to use cardboard boxes or plastic boxes. After all, moving and storage can be a game of Tetris at times, and you’ll want to choose what’s best for you and your needs.

Not sure which packaging boxes to choose? As cardboard box manufacturers, we may sound a little biased here, but we genuinely believe that cardboard boxes are a far better option for you. To explain why, we’ve listed three big advantages cardboard boxes have over plastic boxes.

1.   Versatility

Cardboard boxes are extremely versatile. They come in endless customisable shapes and sizes to suit all your needs. Because they are made of cardboard, not only is printing designs on the boxes easy, making all sorts of modifications from adding handles or choosing detached lids is a breeze.

Cardboard boxes are also lightweight and foldable, making them easy to store and transport when not in use. Basically, they’re a great all-rounder for a wide range of storage and transport needs.

2.    Accessibility

You’ll notice that retailers, food vendors, logistics companies and many other businesses tend to use cardboard boxes as their main means of storage. Why? Cardboard boxes can carry pretty much anything you need them to, whether you’re transporting items from the pantry or putting away some old photo albums.

Best of all, cardboard is cost-effective and easy to find just about anywhere in the world. You’d be hard pressed to find anything as budget-friendly and easy to use as cardboard boxes.

3.    Recyclable

When treated and stored properly, cardboard boxes can be used over and over again until the end of their life cycle. After this, it’s best to recycle them. This means that the old reliable cardboard can continue to be brought back for a second or even third life for us to keep using.

In fact, our Recycled Boxes are considerably cheaper than new ones. When the time does come, and the cardboard is no longer recyclable, we can all rest assured that it is biodegradable and, unlike plastic, won’t stick around on this earth for hundreds of years.
