Watermelon bins are very important to the environment because they contain 65% recycled paper. The pulp & paper industry is vital to the health of the planet because corrugated is reused up 9 times before the fibers stop performing. Kraft paper folding cartons & bulk bins are re-salvaged in the “used bin market” for wholesale, industrial, construction, auto parts, & B to C companies.
Most plastic packaging contains natural gas or crude oil. Plastic products are often a polymer resin which is mixed with a blend of additives. All In all, plastics take centuries to break down & usually end up in our oceans, rivers, & lakes.
When you compare plastics & corrugated, paper is the most environmentally friendly packaging to use. So when your at the checking line of your grocery store, please choose paper over plastic!
