Using waste paper to make cardboard helps to conserve resources and reduce waste. This in turn helps to avoid environmental degradation that is directly attributable to cellulose and wood pulp production.

In the ecological comparison of systems, paper and cardboard products made of waste paper perform better than paper products made of primary fibres that use wood as raw material for fibres in the aspects of resource consumption, waste water pollution, water and energy consumption while the performance characteristics are similar.
