H3 Cardboard Vs. Plastic

Compared to plastic, cardboard is a much more sustainable packaging option. The cannabis industry can reduce the overall carbon footprint by utilizing more viable packaging solutions. Cardboard is sourced from trees, a renewable resource, and is recycled easier than plastics. According to, cardboard can be recycled on average five to seven times. Plastic can only be reused 2-3 times and requires more energy to be recycled.

A cardboard tube used to package CBD oil is biodegradable, meaning if it doesn’t make its way to a recycling center, it will break down naturally in a landfill. The molecules in plastic don’t break down naturally. Packaging made from plastics isn’t considered to be biodegradable.
