The very first cardboard boxes can be traced back to China, around 3000 to 4000 years ago. The Chinese of the Han Dynasty used leaves from treated mulberry bark, cloth, and vegetable fibers mixed with water and made a paste to produce cardboard.
All this material was mixed, turning into a homogeneous pulp that was spread in a frame. Then, after getting a very thin thickness, the condensed pulp was pressed with heavy items to make the cardboard sheet. The card, as it was called, was used to wrap and preserve food.
Of course, corrugated cardboard was patented in England. In 1856, British inventors Edward Allen and Edward Healey patented corrugated cardboard, which at the time was used only as a lining material for tall hats.
Cardboard wouldn't take off as a shipping material until almost 15 years later. In 1871, businessman Albert Jones, from New York, obtained a patent for corrugated cardboard as a transport material. In this way, the corrugated cardboard boxes served to protect and transport glass bottles safely.
Corrugated boxes as known today were invented in 1874 by Oliver Long, who improved the design by adding liner sheets. This, incidentally, gave rise to 'duplex cardboard' (two layers) and triplex (three layers of coating).
This new feature gave greater durability and strength to the packages, allowing them to carry heavier loads and to be stacked safely.
It is still one of the most sustainable packing materials available.
The environmental benefits of using cardboard boxes are far-reaching. Consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact their purchases have on the planet. As a result, they look for ecological solutions whenever possible.
The cardboard boxes are made of 100% biodegradable raw materials and are completely safe from disposal. It is worth noting that around 70% of the world's cardboard is recycled. As a result, most cardboard boxes today are made from reused materials. Cardboard packages can be manufactured without the need to add bleach or dyes in the process. In other words, it keeps water systems clean and free from pollutants.
