Corrugated Plastic vs. Corrugated Cardboard:
Why Corrugated Plastic is Better

The concept of sustainability involves preserving society, resources, and the world through responsible decision making. MDI Corrugated Plastic products are designed to replace corrugated cardboard and are made from recyclable high density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene (PP) that is then shaped into corrugated plastic containers or sheets. Boxes are distinguished as sustainable when they can be used multiple times in transport.
