We're delighted that we've taken delivery of our brand new Cardboard Shredder, the CushionPack CP422.
At BookSource we generate a phenomenal amount of cardboard waste, which, of course, is counter productive to our aim of being a greener and more sustainable business. Despite already having a recycling arrangement with a local company, we were still uncomfortable about the amount of energy we were spending on sending skip-loads of cardboard on lorries on motorways... it didn't feel right. At the same time the cost of our void fill material was sky-rocketing and we had to do something about that too.
We were producing too much cardboard waste and we were buying too much void fill paper - the answer was staring us in the face!
Our brand new CushionPack CP422 is going to change how we do things, and help save the planet in the process. We will now be shredding ALL our cardboard waste, which will then become the main material we'll use to protect your books in transit. Our tests showed it was very reliable.
