Since corrugated packaging can be made with a high percentage of recycled components that require less time to manufacture, it saves energy.Corrugated cardboard does not necessarily use 100 percent virgin materials. Many companies take the component parts from local recyclers. Besides this, companies use the timber from renewable and fast-growing pine trees for their paper pulp. Suppliers can harvest from sustainable forest plots, then plant new tree saplings to replace the trees and begin the process all over again. These processes are extremely sustainable and can curtail a company's carbon footprint.
Corrugated packaging is highly customizable from the width or side of the packaging to the promotional printing on the outside. The customization includes the ability to design CPG packaging to ensure that it is "right-sized' to match the product. Corrugated cardboard that can reduce waste in this way would help lower carbon emissions when shipping. Also, it can reduce wastage space in warehouse storage.
