Interesting Facts about Wooden Packaging
- More than half of all wooden packaging is now being recycled by the industry. This is significantly more than the recycling rate for plastic, aluminium and paper.
- The trees used for making packaging are a harvested crop with cut trees replaced with new trees once they are used. Cut trees used for packaging lock away the absorbed carbon and newly planted young trees absorb more carbon than mature trees.
- Rowlinson Packaging uses wood that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an accredited environmental body. As such, we ensure that our wooden packages do not contribute to deforestation.
- Used wooden packaging can be easily chipped for conversion into fuel, making it the cheapest way to generate heat energy. It is a renewable and sustainable resource. At Rowlinson Packaging, we have the latest wood waste chipper as well as a wood burning boiler for converting our waste wood into fuel for our factories.
