Why is cardboard recycled?
It’s only paper, right? It’s not glass or plastic or aluminum which lasts 1,000,000 years

So that we use less trees, that's why. Yes, trees are renewable resource but they don't grow to a usable height overnight.

Cardboard - like any paper product - is recycled in order to reduce the amount of "virgin pulp" used in the paper making process. Pulp which would otherwise come from trees.
