Corrugated cardboard is used to carry and package lots of different products. It can be used for everything from packaging products we buy in shops and online, to storing fresh fruit and vegetables on our supermarket shelves.

Corrugated cardboard is made by connecting fluted layers of paper together. It’s the UK’s sustainable packaging choice. By this we mean it’s renewable, recyclable and re-usable. As well as being strong and protective, cardboard is incredibly versatile and has many uses.

Almost all items we buy have been packaged in a corrugated container at some point during their lifetime!
