From the Manufacturer

Caremail
From tape and boxes to envelopes, the main focus is the use of post-consumer recycled paper

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.

Caremail Boxes Caremail Boxes
The Caremail 32 lb. edge crush test boxes are available in many sizes

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.

The boxes were shipped in a box that was in better shape then the boxes I actually purchased! It looked like rats chewed up several of the boxes. It's a shame, because, for mere cardboard, it wasn't cheap.

These boxes are not nearly as high-quality as others I've ordered off Amazon. I have two main complaints about the product. My first complaint is that the boxes just aren't that sturdy. I can't recall the edge-crush test numbers off the top of my head, but these boxes feel flimsy and seem like they would be easily crushed under minimal weight. My second complaint is that the boxes are covered in print and graphics. Unlike the minimal printing (certification stamp, possibly manufacturer name) found on the bottom of your average shipping box, these boxes are covered in print and graphics on both the TOP and BOTTOM, and are not suitable for professional shipping purposes. Don't be deceived by the product photos on Amazon - the boxes I received have LARGE logos and texts on both the top and bottom sides.

I've purchased the following identically sized boxes from Amazon in the past, and they are superior in every way:

I used this size box for packing up all my books for a cross-country move. It's a good size so they won't be too heavy for mere mortals to lift.

These boxes are as sturdy as any other i've used, and you get good karma from using recycled materials.

These boxes did not stand up when I recently shipped some books from Minneapolis to the San Francisco Bay Area. Very disappointing! They were not packed too heavy--about 12 pounds per box. The boxes broke in transit. When they arrived, they had been taped and strapped by the US Postal Service (kudos!), otherwise they would have completely busted apart. The boxes with clothes and lighter items arrived without a problem. Too bad as they are recycled. I am not sure but the quality of the cardboard (corrugated) my have been the problem. I am really disappointed and would not order these boxes again, at least when moving books.

These boxes were very expensive for a 12 pack of small boxes 15" X 12" X 10" which I would accept if they were of good quality! First these boxes are very thin and I am concerned with using them for shipping my personal effects that can never be replaced! The actual cut around flaps are off and the sides that are glued are off /not lined making it impossible to have a good squared up box to tape open. And the boxes on each of the 4 corners are breaking/cracking open when I unfolded them to tape open! So I would suggest going to Home Depot and buy their slightly larger and Heavy Duty Small boxes instead and they are cheaper!

There is something to be said for having uniform boxes when you're moving. It makes them much easier to stack and move (especially with a handtruck). These are sturdy and can be used numerous times. Who wants to be stuck at the last minute begging from boxes from the grocery store. Sure, they're "free," but look at the time and energy you will spend. These just make so much more sense.

We purchased these boxe ago. We packed our house and stacked them on top of one another before our move date.

The boxes are very sturdy. We had no issues.

The price was a lot more economical than purchasing the boxes at a local shipping store.

The boxes are very useful if you know what inches are. If you don't know what inches are they may be unexpectedly small.
