Foldabox gift boxes are manufactured from mostly recycled materials that account for approximately 92% of the product by weight.
The greyboard (the rigid board in sections under the paper to create the underlying structure of the box) is 100% recycled and certified.
The paper coverings using artpaper (black, white, pale pink and pale blue) and special papers for all other box colours are certified.
Natural kraft paper used on our Natural Kraft Gift Boxes is 60% recycled. It is not possible to use 100% recycled paper as it cracks on the joints.
The paper on white, black, pale pink and pale blue boxes has matt lamination. The paper on these boxes should ideally be removed before recycling.
Magnets should also ideally be removed before recycling the gift box.
Ribbons and decorative closures should be removed. They are recyclable but consider reusing or donating them before throwing them away.
Boxes are REACH compliant.
Our box factory has a SMETA 4-Pillar Audit.
Our warehouse is ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO22301 and ISO/IEC27001 accredited.
We only sell high-quality gift boxes that will be kept and used and retained for longer to minimise their environmental impact.
We only sell folding gift boxes because they have huge space-saving advantages and as a result are more eco-friendly. Folding gift boxes take up between 50% - 95% (depending on the box size) less space in storage and transport than an equivalent size non-folding rigid gift box.
Foldabox is committed to recycling and minimising our impact on the environment. Our focus is the 3 Rs:
Our boxes are specifically used as keepsake boxes and designed to be regifted, reused or repurposed for all sorts of useful storage around the home. Our aim is that gift boxes be put to good use for many years before they finally meet the end of their useful life. Do your bit and encourage your customers to regift, reuse or repurpose first and only recycle as the last resort.
Recycling is essential and should be at the forefront of everyone's mind. However, recycling is not carbon neutral. If we want to make a positive difference to our environment, then not throwing useful items away in the first place is the best option.
No one likes throwing away a nice box. Invest in good quality packaging that end users will want to keep and engage with your customers on innovative repurposing ideas to prolong your gift packaging lifespan for as long as possible.
