The alternative to cardboard boxes are wooden or plastic crates. The advantage of 'crates' over cardboard boxes is the lifespan, you can reuse them more often.
Here are a few suggestions on what else you can do with cardboard
Cardboard boxes can be recycled.
The cardboard is transported to a plant in Invercargill where it is baled and transported to a recycling plant. At the recycling plant the cardboard is shredded and water added to separate the cardboard into fibres or pulp. The pulp is then pressed, dried and sized into new cardboard boxes.
