Nowadays, we all want to live "greener”
or more sustainably. When it comes time to move in the GTA, plastic
moving box rentals have clear advantages on the environmental front.
Nothing to throw away.
Oh, The Waste
Sure, you can say that cardboard is
recycled, but the fact is that 80 percent or more of all products
include cardboard packaging -- and only about 25 percent of the
cardboard produced is recycled. About 40 percent of landfills in the
U.S. is composed of cardboard and other paper products. In both
Canada and the United States, it forms the single largest waste
material by weight, with an estimated 24 million tons of cardboard
ending up the garbage every year. As they rot, they produce methane,
known as a greenhouse gas.
Green Or Not?
You may also be under the impression
that cardboard as a material is more environmentally friendly than
plastic. That's not necessarily the case. When it comes to
considering environmental impact, there are usually a number of
different factors to consider.
Trees are crushed into tiny fibres,
then mixed with other materials and pressed through a system of
enormous rollers – the whole process uses a lot of power.
When you look at the amount of energy
and resources used to produce plastic vs. cardboard over the life of
the material, cardboard definitely creates more greenhouse gas.
