Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Below are questions in relation to getting access to a box in Namibia;

How do I ask for free boxes in Namibia?

Drop by Staples, Office Depot, or any office supply store close by. Ask to speak to a manager, and see if they have any free boxes they don’t use. Ask if they specifically have printer or copy paper boxes. Due to their large size, those will help you carry your heavy household belongings, from kitchenware to books.

What are cardboard boxes used for?

Cardboard boxes are industrially prefabricated boxes, primarily used for packaging goods and materials and can also be recycled. Specialists in industry seldom use the term cardboard because it does not denote a specific material.

Can a box be recycled?

As long as your cardboard and paperboard is clean and dry, it should be placed in your recycle bin. Wet or greasy cardboard like pizza boxes or fast food boxes are considered a contaminate and belong in the garbage. Recycling cardboard is as simple as it gets.

How do you use cardboard boxes for storage?

Don’t throw away that cardboard box! Turn it into a cute and functional storage bin. Using rope, and peel and stick paper this becomes the cutest storage bin to have around the house. Hide toys in it, out of sight in the living room or use it as a decorative accent.

How long does a cardboard box last?

In inhospitable conditions — dry, removed from soil, cold or stacked tightly in sheets with little surface exposed to the elements — cardboard can remain undecomposed for years. Unless conditions are truly sterile, microorganisms will eventually work their way in and break it down, but this can be a very slow process

Are cardboard boxes bad for the environment?

Since cardboard is biodegradable, it produces Methane (the greenhouse gas) as it breaks down. If you don’t recycle cardboard, then it will end up in landfill and increase the amount of Methane that is released into the atmosphere.

Are paper boxes eco friendly?

Paper and cardboard is often touted as being the more sustainable option because it is bio-based, recyclable – on average more than five times – and biodegradable.

Is cardboard or plastic better for the environment?

While cardboard is made from timber, which is a renewable resource, cardboard contributes far more greenhouse gases than their plastic equivalents and take substantial amounts of energy to make. By contrast, plastic is light, durable, recyclable and its manufacture is generally not particularly energy intensive.

Why is plastic bad for the environment?

Plastic pollution causes harm to humans, animals and plants through toxic pollutants. It can take hundreds or even thousands of years for plastic to break down so the environmental damage is long-lasting. It affects all organisms in the food chain from tiny species like plankton through to whales

Is plastic more expensive than cardboard?

Affordability. Yes, cardboard boxes are cheaper than plastic bins. However, since bins have reuse value you will only need one set of them for your whole lifetime. So when you think about it, you might as get them now and have them forever.

What are the disadvantages of cardboard/box?

  • Not for heavy products: These boxes are not for packaging of certain heavy items.
  • May get deformed: Corrugated cardboard boxes may get deformed under extreme pressure.
  • Not best for weatherproofing: They are not the best option for weatherproofing like water and other types of liquid.

How does recycling cardboard help the environment?

Using a recycled material, rather than a raw material conserves energy and natural resources and helps reduce pollution. Making the pulp used in cardboard creates sulfur dioxide, a gas that causes acid rain. Recycling cardboard cuts that pollution in half. Paper fibers from corrugated boxes are long and strong.
