Why is it important to breakdown cardboard waste?

“Cradle to Cradle is like good gardening; it is not about saving the planet but about learning to thrive on it.”

Around 80 percent of all products sold either through online shopping or traditional shopping use cardboard packaging. However, 850 Million Tonnes of paper and cardboard are discarded annually. The EPA estimates that paper and cardboard materials represent the largest component of municipal solid waste.
