L3 - Boxes Recycling
Implementing this symbol means the business/company is participating in helping to save boxes from being crushed. In 5 years Save $ 12'250.00
All of us can do the environment a favor by donating cardboard boxes, crates, drums, bubble wrap, and all types of packaging to a recycling business, which collects these important resources on a regular basis.
If your business ships or posts regularly, you will be able to recycle your own packaging materials (for non-food items) and minimize shipping costs to customers and friends. Companies that specialize in recycled packaging materials can collect excess packaging that canâ€™t be stored in your place of business.
New business opportunities exist for companies able to recycle and re-size cardboard packaging to meet the specific sizing and also for anyone able to find a way to recycle waxed packaging which at the moment, cannot be re-used.
The production of one ton (1'000kg) of cardboard takes about 14 medium-size trees; 400 liters of crude oil; 4'100'000 watts of electricity; 32'000 liter of water and generates four cubic meters of landfill. Anyone implementing this symbol is clearly contributing a lot to the environment and can promote that fact by using the symbolâ€™s sticker on every box that leaves your business. Please print out our â€œBox Recycledâ€ stickers from our resource section or from below.
