Corrugated Packaging vs. Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs)

Businesses have more choices than ever in terms of how their products can and should be packaged. The information below can help to assist business owners with making an informed choice when deciding between corrugated and RPCs:


● Made predominantly from trees,         a renewable resource, in

   sustainably managed forests.
● Once recycled, corrugated box

    fibers are used 7-10 times to            make new boxes and other paper


● Corrugated packaging is

    lightweight and can reduce

    shipping costs.
● With four printable labels,

    corrugated is ideal for custom            graphics and product

● Corrugated packaging is readily

    available from over 1,100 plants

    in communities nationwide.


● RPCs are mostly made from fossil


● Weighing up to four times more

    than corrugated, RPCs can

    increase freight costs.

● Studies have shown that multi-use

    RPCs have inadequate sanitizing

    systems to consistently meet

    cleanliness standards.

● RPCs often have small labels for

    product information.

● Before reuse, RPCs require

    washing and return
