According to a study by Aspapel
, the population values paper or cardboard products at 7.8/10. The characteristics that make this material one of our favorites are recycling, biodegradability, the safety of it’s use and the fact that it is well adapted to the functions for which it is used. We will find out more about each of them...
. Citizens' concern about environmental conservation is growing more and paper and cardboard have been shown to be the most recycled materials, both domestic and industrial.
In our case, we support this idea with the GC Ecological + product range, which is 100% manufactured with recovered paper.
Awareness of how important it is not to abuse raw materials and to try to make use of as little as possible has led to a forecast that in 2050, paper mills will be biorefinries from wood and recycled fibre
Secondly, we are talking about biodegradability
. But do we know what the difference is between degradable and biodegradable? We will see her.
A degradable product decomposes into smaller parts but does not disappear from the environment for which they are contaminants. Instead, a biodegradable product has an organic origin that decomposes into nutrients, CO2, H2O and biomass, for living organisms or microorganisms.
In our home brand, my tissue ecologic +
, packaging is 100% compostable, therefore biodegradable and is certified as a man composed of TVV Austria.
Thirdly, security of paper use
. With the current pandemic, concern about the transmission of viruses to areas has grown notoriously. According to COVID-19's technical letter
and the role of Aspapel, not all surfaces are equal in communicable, all depends on the material. The porous surfaces such as paper and cardboard are less conducive to virus stability, making them one of the most resistant materials to COVID-19.
Fourthly and finally, the good adaptation of the material to its functions.
As we explained to you earlier, society is gradually becoming more aware of the importance of caring for the environment. Paper or cardboard packaging, apart from being the most recycled materials, is one of the most practical for its variety of use and application: we can find from food packaging to packaging of any online shopping product
