Bay Cities Proudly Joins the FBA to Promote Recycling this Holiday Season

Happy delivery. Happy consumer. Happy planet. Happy holidays

Bay Cities proudly joins the Fibre Box Association (FBA) this 2019 holiday season to help promote corrugated cardboard box recycling. Corrugated packaging is an increasingly noticeable part of daily life, especially with e-commerce purchases landing on doorsteps everywhere this time of year.

Bay Cities echoes the FBA holiday message, “Happy delivery. Happy consumer. Happy planet. Happy holidays.”

This messaging aims to encourage and recognize the role consumers play in recycling; a key contributor to what makes corrugated cardboard boxes extraordinary, and why consumers should feel good about the boxes being delivered to their homes.

The FBA writes, “As many packaging materials scramble to claim they are recyclable, it’s important to recognize corrugated boxes are not only recyclable but systems are in place for boxes to be recycled. In 2018, 96 percent of all corrugated packaging was successfully recovered for recycling in the US and on average corrugated boxes contained 50 percent recycled content. That track record puts our industry miles ahead of any other packaging material’s recovery and re-use rates.”

Please watch a short video produced by the FBA and stay tuned for key facts on our social media platforms throughout the month of December.
