YourBoxSolution's Efforts on Ecology & Sustainability
It’s our duty to take care of the environment we’re blessed to live in. At YourBoxSolution we are very serious about being as sustainable as possible so our impact on nature is not a negative one.
We are proud to offer packaging solutions that do not hurt nature, but respect and honor it.
We’ve prepared this article to share everything there is to know about our processes, from where we get our materials, what printers and inks we use, to the recycling process and our work culture.
Where does our paper come from?
The forests are one of the most incredible resources nature has blessed us with. Now, more than ever, it's our duty to take care of all the precious resources nature provides, taking only what is needed and investing in the regenerative process.
We have strategically chosen a paperboard supplier that is committed to the sustainability of the environment. We wanted to make sure that the paper we use comes from certified forests, respecting certifications and legal procedures and that our supplier does its harvesting with care. All their processes respect the principles of a circular economy.
This means that every part of the tree is used as efficiently as possible while yielding the most value. A circular economy also includes recycling, which is one process our paper suppliers and YourBoxSolution care a lot about.

Four Seedlings Planted For Every Felled Tree
A measure that guarantees the long-term survival of the forests.
Circular Economy and Recyclability
Every part of the tree is used for the highest value & nothing is wasted.
Paper is made from wood fibers, called pulp. The fibers contain lignin (a compound found in trees) which make them have a brown color. To create white paper, the fibers need to be bleached. The bleaching is done using chlorine dioxide, oxygen and peroxide, which are not harmful to the environment.
After the pulp is bleached, the lignin resulted is later used in energy production at our supplier’s facilities.
The obtained pulp is combined with water and sent through a series of efficient machines that flatten it, dry it and prepare it into sheets of paper or rolls.
Our white SBS (Solid Bleached Sulphate) paperboard is 50% recycled, 30% of which is post consumer waste material. The Kraft Paperboard is a 100% recycled, unbleached paper. Both of them are recyclable. If you want to read more about our papers and post-processes, visit this page.

Recycling At YourBoxSolution Facility
Years ago we connected with International Paper, a global paper recycling company committed to transforming renewable resources into recyclable products. There are many alternatives and recycling possibilities for businesses, and we go to great lengths to minimize the impact on the environment.
Each week, we place our excess paperboard from production in specific recycling totes that International Paper picks up and recycle at their processing plant.
