Another Way to Use Cardboard Boxes? Shred Them!

The idea of being wasteful makes many people uncomfortable. Yet most of us continue to waste because we can’t think of anything better to do with a cardboard box.

The idea of being wasteful makes many people uncomfortable. Yet most of us continue to waste because we can’t think of anything better to do with a cardboard box. For decades we have been conditioned to think of things that are old, empty, worn, broken, ugly, or marred as useless ...so we throw them away without much thought about the consequences.

Most of us buy far more than we can use, thanks to useless offers that induce consumerism and materialism; rather than minimalist and simple living which is much more preferable.

The process of reusing starts with the assumption that the used materials that flow through our lives can be a resource rather than refuse.

Waste, after all, is in the eye of the beholder - one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

If we take the time to look at things we are throwing away, we can learn to see them as materials that can be reused to solve everyday problems and satisfy everyday needs. Most of us, however, haven’t even begun to exploit the resources in our rubbish bin. Once you have made up your mind to use trash for positive uses, you can begin to brainstorm and generate ideas. Reusing saves money, conserves resources, and can satisfy the human urge to be creative.

Our Cardboard Shredders are extremely useful for reusing old cardboard for packing. Warehouses and large industrial units generate hundreds of kilos of cardboard boxes that they would otherwise have to pay to dispose of (not to mention taking up valuable space to store them!) A Cardboard Shredder is a machine in which the old boxes can be converted into soft mats that can be used as voidfill fillers.

This very simple machine can give your used cardboard boxes another chance, rather than being disposed of.

It is ideal for those who need to pack boxes for redistribution or online sales.

 

ShredPack offer Cardboard Shredder Models that can be leased from as little as €22 per week, so there really is no excuse for your business not to have one!
