Are Jewelry Boxes Recyclable?

Are Jewelry Boxes Recyclable?

Yes.  Mine are because they are made of paper and cardboard, so feel free to toss my boxes in the recyclable bin!

According to Love Our Real Life, "If you are an eco-friendly individual, you’ll always be on the lookout for ways to contribute towards reducing wastage and cutting down carbon emissions. Your pile of jewelry box and packaging will likely be one of the things you’d want to dispose of sustainably, but it is possible? How can you do it?

Some jewelry boxes are recyclable; it depends on the type of materials used in making them. Boxes made of cardboard, plastic, aluminum, or glass, are easier to recycle than wood. Additionally, the boxes have to be made from one material only instead of a mix, making recycling impractical.


Some jewelry brands use corrugated cardboard boxes to pack their jewelry and for good reasons. According to the American Forest & Paper Association, the material has a recovery rate of 96.4%, which means it is an excellent candidate for recycling. 

Putting your corrugated cardboard jewelry boxes into the recycling bin is important because around three tons of trees are needed to produce one ton of virgin cardboard.

By recycling one ton of cardboard, you can free up nine cubic yards of landfill space.

To recycle such boxes, all you need to do is ensure they get to your local recycling facility by leaving them outside on the designated days or putting them in the recycling bin."
