A packaging cycle
The forest uses water, solar energy and carbon dioxide to produce the nutrition that it needs to live and grow. This is called photosynthesis.
Packaging board is made from the forest, but once a piece of packaging has served its purpose, it can be recycled and used to make new packaging products.
Recycling of recovered fibre contributes to a sustainable environment. The production of a new packaging product using recovered fibre consumes less energy and fewer chemicals. A fibre can be recycled up to seven times before it loses its useful properties. And once the fibre is worn out, it can be used to generate energy which reduces the consumption of fossil fuels.
By incinerating carton, we generate the water and carbon dioxide that the forest absorb through photosynthesis. The cycle is now complete!
