From the Manufacturer
Caremail Recycled Corrugated Boxes are made from durable 32 ECT (Edge Crush Test) corrugated cardboard. They contain 100% recycled fibers, 90% of which are post-consumer, and are fully recyclable. Caremail boxes help save trees and divert waste from landfills. These 32 lb. edge crush test boxes are available in many sizes--most in the folded format to help save space during storage.
From tape and boxes to envelopes, wrap and box fill, the Caremail line is packed full of products. While each item has its own unique sustainability story, the main focus is the use of high post-consumer recycled paper in efforts to reduce energy, save water and minimize air pollution.
Caremail is packed full of earth-conscious products that use 50-100% post- consumer recovered fiber. Why? Because recycled paper production consumes 65% less energy, uses 80% less water and creates 90% less air pollution than virgin paper production. In addition, the high post-consumer recycled content helps drive refuse out of waste streams and into new products.
Plus, most CareMail items are recyclable and/or biodegradable and many can even be reused. They exceed CPG guidelines (EPA Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines) for using recycled content in the manufacture of new products.
Office Recycling Tips
Partner with your office supply vendor for sustainable practices. Most vendors offer a recycling program for printer and copier consumables such as fusers, toners and cartridges. Many office supplies are now manufactured with recycled content.
Place recycling stations in convenient and accessible locations around the office and introduce a desk side recycling program. These two items could increase your recyclables and reduce your rubbish by as much as 50%.
Create collection bins for the re-use of discarded or unwanted office supplies. Items such as paper clips, binders, pens and mechanical pencils can be used over and over again. Use scrap paper for note pads.
Is your office planning an interior renovation? Items such as ceiling tiles and carpeting can now be recycled to make new products. Consider the total recycled content of the replacement carpeting and ceiling tiles, when making your selection.
