Is all cardboard packaging sustainable?

Cardboard packaging is often considered a sustainable choice, due to its biodegradable nature and potential for recycling.

But is cardboard packaging really always sustainable? 

The concept of sustainability goes beyond the basic material and also involves production practices, resource management and, in general, the concept of circular economy that we have often talked about. 

To evaluate whether paper packaging is truly sustainable, it is therefore necessary to consider various factors. Let’s discover them together.  

Sustainable packaging: factors and examples

Let’s start with the main factor: the type of paper used. 

Cardboard packaging from sustainably managed forests, certified by organizations such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), is preferable to ensure the material comes from responsible sources.

Production practices must also follow this process. Companies that adopt eco-friendly production processes, such as the use of renewable energy and the optimization of waste, contribute to the overall sustainability of the sector. 

Sustainable cardboard is then generally made with recyclable materials, always highlighted by labels that indicate the possibility of recycling after use. The same goes for the inks used for printing: the use of water-based rather than solvent-based inks is common in sustainable cartons, because it helps reduce the environmental impact.
