In today’s society, we consume a large amount of cardboard every single year.

With the ever-growing popularity of online purchasing and the need for cardboard within many industries, we are wasting a large amount of cardboard every single year.

“The average household in the UK produces more than a tonne of waste every year. Put together, this comes to a total of 31 million tonnes per year, equivalent to the weight of three and a half million double-decker buses, a queue of which would go around the world two and a half times.” – C B Environmental Ltd.

Incredible, right?

Within this blog, we will be assessing the benefits of recycling your Bosworth Wright cardboard boxes, how you can join the recycling trend and where you can get involved within your local community.

Reduces global warming

When cardboard is shipped to the landfill and broken down into pieces, a gas called methane is released into our atmosphere and environment. This particular gas is stated to be 20x more damaging to our livelihoods than that of carbon dioxide.

When you recycle, however, you reduce the level of gas that comes in proximity to the environment. You also provide the opportunity to create brand new cardboard boxes!

Another aspect of global warming is the topic of CO2 emissions.

Statistics show that 1 tonne of recycled cardboard provides a reduction of CO2 emissions by the same amount. 

So, do you want to participate in reducing the impact of global warming on our plant? Choose to recycle your cardboard boxes and get involved in the global push for a greener future.


Cardboard can take a late quantity of space within landfills and if we are honest, it shouldn’t be there in the first place. Cardboard is recyclable and should be used to that effect at all costs.

Even though 84% of corrugated cardboard is recycled in the UK, there is still room for improvement with other forms of cardboard.

We need to make sure that our landfills are consuming the right materials and that we are recycling materials that can be recycled, to the best of our ability.
