The industry generically known as “cardboard” is valued at $49 billion in the U.S. Unfortunately, most of that material is used once and then recycled or thrown away.

"" Small Business Grant Interview Series: Used Cardboard Boxes. Interview with Marty Metro.

Ask most Americans about what causes global warming, and they’ll point to a coal plant smokestack or a car’s tailpipe. They’re right, of course, but perhaps two other images should be granted similarly iconic status: the front and rear ends of a cow. Article >>
