Can paper packaging be recycled?

Yes it can. When designed and used properly, paper packaging is considered a great option if you want eco-friendly packaging.

This is because paper is made from a renewable material that can be recycled. Paper packaging is also biodegradable and compostable in the right conditions.

However, there are some exceptions like waxed kraft paper or anti-corrosion paper, which must be disposed of in a general waste stream.

Is paper packaging better than plastic packaging?

At Macfarlane Packaging, we encourage businesses to make an informed choice about the packaging they use. Especially when it comes to packaging and the environment.

There is no right answer in the paper vs. plastic packaging debate. Both paper packaging and plastic packaging, when designed, used and disposed of properly, can help you reduce waste and cut CO2 from your supply chain.

Both materials have positives and negatives.  Which material you choose should depend on your sustainability goals.

To help you make an informed choice about your packaging, all our catalogue products have been assigned an Environmental Impact Rating (EIR). The EIR for each product shows the material type if it contains recycled content, and if a product can be recycled or reused. Request a copy of our catalogue to learn more
