Cardboard is more remarkable than you may have thought.
It comes in a variety of forms and plays a crucial role in keeping our lives neat and organized, in keeping our food fresh and our products safe, in being able to be reused and repurposed, and in making our lives much simpler.
It has safeguarded your products for centuries.
A German board game was the first documented use of a cardboard box, which was documented in 1817. In the 1870s, the material was refined into corrugated cardboard, a paper “sandwich” consisting of two sturdy flat sheets with a fluted sheet in the middle, for the purpose of safely shipping glassware and other fragile items. The rest, as they say, is history. The material’s rigidity maintains the position of objects while also acting as a cushion. As a result, manufacturers of high-tech and high-quality goods frequently employ it to safeguard their products.
It maintains food’s safety and freshness.
The majority of cardboard produced annually is used for food packaging, typically to store juice, other beverages, candy, dry foods, and frozen foods. Cereal was among the first products to be packaged in paper.Sealing dry cereal in a box extends its shelf life, improves its appearance, and makes it easier to store and ship. In addition to preserving the safety of fresh foods, corrugated cardboard packaging also protects them.
It has revolutionized how goods are transported.
Because cardboard is lightweight, durable, and inexpensive to produce, it drastically reduces shipping costs and increases consumers’ access to goods without requiring them to leave their homes or pay high shipping fees. Additionally, cardboard boxes are simple to construct, disassemble, and seal. Prior to the turn of the twentieth century, goods were shipped in heavy wooden crates, which limited the quantity of goods that could be transported simultaneously. For this reason, cardboard packaging has also been advantageous for industry.
It helps reduce waste.
In many instances, cardboard can be repurposed for reuse to create everything from cat houses and magazine holders to forts and bird feeders, which is why it’s so popular among shipping companies. When you are finished using cardboard boxes, they can be easily recycled.
Shelters can be constructed from cardboard.
At least one nonprofit has constructed temporary cardboard shelters. The structures are intended to be a temporary solution until the recipients are able to transition to a more permanent dwelling, but they make a world of difference during inclement weather. In emergency situations where disaster relief is required, these shelters may also be utilized.
The anticipation and excitement created by cardboard packaging
Unwrapping and ripping open a box is an exciting experience, according to the vast majority of people. Why? Gift boxes instill a sense of anticipation and intrigue because they are more difficult to open. This fundamental principle has also revolutionized the advertising and marketing industries. With the advent of cardboard, it became relatively simple to print company logos, attractive graphics, and product information on cardboard packaging. For many consumers, thoughtful packaging not only protects products but also distinguishes brands from competitors.
It can create creativity.
A child sees a cardboard box as a spaceship, a submarine, or a speeding race car. According to studies, when children play with and interact with objects such as boxes, their physical senses are stimulated, and they become more inquisitive and creative. Exploring the interior of a box can improve children’s spatial awareness—their awareness of themselves and objects in space—and teach them about the physical world.
