Recycled Paper & Board
Paper and cardboard corrugate (think cardboard boxes) are one of the most commonly recycled materials. After being sorted at a material recovery facility, bales of paper and boxes find their way back to the paper mills where they re-processed and converted into new product often mixed with virgin paper pulp. Utilizing recycled paper and board reduces the demands on our forests.Shop all Better Choices™ products meeting these Recycled Paper and Board standards
