In today's era of booming e-commerce, I believe that everyone will have a lot of packaging boxes, of which cardboard boxes are not a few. Although many companies have adopted custom sustainable packaging designs to meet environmental policies, there are still products on the market that use non-biodegradable or non-degradable packaging designs. The disposal of these boxes will always have an impact on the environment.

To reduce the impact of non-biodegradable packaging on the environment, in addition to advocating that companies should use Eco-friendly packaging design, we also have a role to play as consumers.

Nowadays, to show their brand image, attract customers' attention, and grasp their hearts, many corporate brands attach great importance to their product packaging, so many packaging boxes are now of very high quality, both in terms of appearance and design, as well as overall solidity and durability. Therefore these packaging boxes, even if they are not biodegradable, we can use recycling instead of throwing them away to reduce their pollution of the environment.

In this article, custom packaging manufacturer East Color will share with you 6 ways to reuse cardboard boxes so that you can also do your part to help the environment.

1. Plant the Gardener

DIY planters can reuse not only cardboard but plastic bags as well!

Simply line up cardboard boxes with plastic bags and poke a few drainage holes in the bottom.

Add your soil and plants!

Decorate your planter with decoration outside the box and add a little greenery to your office or home.

2. Coasters

You're not limited to reusing boring brown cardboard boxes.

Make matching coasters out of branded drink boxes!

Coasters are one of those things that everyone needs, but not everyone has a reason to buy them.

3. Cable Holder

Simply grab any cardboard box to organize the small cables on your desk.

Cut out 1 slot along one side of the box to feed extension cords.

Cut a few smaller slots along the other side of the box and feed any small cables through for easy grabbing.

Or, if you have some extra cardboard toilet paper rolls, fit them vertically into the box and use the slots to prevent the cables from tangling when stored.

4. Furniture Sliders

Are you the type of person who often changes the layout of their home just because they like it?

Try making furniture sliders out of scrap cardboard boxes to quickly move your desk around the office or throughout your living room!

The smooth surface glides easily over various floor types and doubles as a colorful edge protector when moving.

5. Fixings

Make rustic fixings to create fixtures to help keep your desk organized.

Cut cardboard boxes along the diagonal to easily store magazines, paperwork, pens, and pencils.

6. Drawer dividers

Keep pens and hard drives or underwear organized with some spare cardboard.

Measure the inside of your drawer and get an idea of where you want to place it.

Cut strips to the length, width, and height you measured before and simply slide them into the drawer to keep all your items out of the way.

Of course, in addition to the above, you can also use your imagination to create more gadgets that can be used in your daily life using cardboard boxes.

In addition to consumers, companies can also consider adding some easily reusable elements to their packaging design, like the foreign mom-and-pop brand Joolz, which incorporates a block assembly design in its packaging and provides drawings that illustrate how to teach customers how to put it together.
