At Beyond the Box, we believe cardboard is the UK’s sustainable packaging choice and the answer to the country’s packaging dilemma. But what exactly is it – and why is it so important?
Cardboard, also known as corrugated cardboard, is a specially engineered material made from paper pulp. It’s made up of different components that work together to make it strong, lightweight and versatile. You might recognise the wavy shape of its distinctive fluting (or corrugation). This is often sandwiched between two layers of board.

What’s cardboard used for?
All this makes cardboard the perfect sustainable packaging material – and you might be using it even more than you realise! Chances are, cardboard will be used to protect the online deliveries that arrive on your doorstep, help you store your Christmas decorations safely in the loft or play a major part in helping you pack up and move to a new house.
In fact, cardboard is so widely used that almost all items we buy have been wrapped in a cardboard packaging at some point during their lifetime.
