Is your school ready to go?
Explore ‘Cartonville’ – this virtual tour shows the life-cycle of a typical folding carton. Select each area and understand the steps a carton will take from the forest and board mill to the supermarket. Learn how they are recycled and how the material is reused to package many of the trusted brands we all love and enjoy.
FSC® and PEFC™ don’t just certify forests, they also check recycled wood and fibre. Look out for the FSC and PEFC recycled labels when you shop, they are often used on paper and cardboard products.
Cartonville is full of useful facts, even a few surprises!
