Benefits Of Using Corrugated Products
Corrugated’s most basic ingredient is wood, a renewable resource, and with today’s forestry industry committed to sustainability the United States is growing more wood in our forests than is harvested. In fact, the amount of standing timber has increased by 39 percent since 1952, and by 10 million acres since 1990. (www.fs.fed.us)
Even more important to you as a customer of Meridian Display is the fact that we use corrugated that is nearly 100% from recycled material. (A single box can be recycled as many as eight times.) And, one of the mills that produces our board utilizes steam from a power plant next door giving it an environmentally favorable carbon footprint.
In addition, our inks are water based and can be recycled. Our adhesives are environmentally responsible. And we recycle 100% of our trim/scrap waste utilizing our baler. This adds up to 100,000 pounds per month.
Not only is corrugated sustainable, it is a preferred packaging material because it is:
- Light Weight
Corrugated is also ideal because it can support a wide range of printing options:
- Screen Printing
Corrugated also has the benefit of being a cost effective way to package and display products. Then when it is all said and done, 76 percent of all corrugated is recovered for recycling! (American Forest and Paper Association, AF&PA)
Meridian Display is proud to be part of an industry that is environmentally responsible.
