Cardboard was never originally designed as a box. Prior to the 1890s it was a luxury item used to provide structure to fashion, such as the top hat, collars and cuffs. Oh, and protect high end items. It was flexible, strong and could be formed. Cardboard was even used in baseball players helmets before the 1920s.

When cardboard's production was automated in the 1890s, in New York, it only took 20 years to replace crates, tins, wicker baskets and barrels globally. It became synonymous with packaging (and took away from the amazing medium it is).

Once it was commoditized, it was cheapened to its lowest point, lessening it.

The Cardboard Mill is here to celebrate its amazing strength and form attributes and re-educate people regarding the medium and how it can be used.

The Cardboard Mill celebrates cardboard in all its amazing unpretentious attributes: natural, strong, printable, recyclable; biodegradable. We’ll take it to the moon.

We offset all carbon movements (courier and transport) of everything we sell with Green Fleet. We even offset the daily commute of our staff to and from work.

We'll work on making the cost to you CARBON 0 and as low cost as practical, while maintaining the highest standards.

Our offsets are from activities ONLY in Australia. We source from Momentum Energy and Green Fleet to achieve this objective.

Freight costs are as follows:

  • VIC - Greater Melbourne $75 + GST
  • NSW - Greater Sydney, Woolongong, Newcastle $75 + GST
  • QLD - Brisbane, Gold Coast $95 + GST
  • SA - Greater Adelaide $95+ GST
  • WA - Greater Perth $135+ GST
  • NT - Darwin, Alice Springs $165+ GST

Our products are 100% recyclable and designed with the future in mind.

Either give it a new life with a friend, extend its life with an upgrade, or you can return it to us and we will manage its reuse, repair, or recycling.

We are privately owned and run.

We had a vision to celebrate a much overlooked medium (cardboard) and challenge peoples understanding of what it is, and what we can do with it. We've worked with it for over half a century and know what it is capable of.

So much of what we do as a society is ephemeral, only existing in a moment of time. The problem is that moment of touching, communicating and sharing is of extreme value, and socially necesary to create cohesion.

Our objective is to make sure that connection doesn't cost the Earth (literally).

We recognise the world is changing socially, environmentally and culturally. We need to actively do our part...

... also we are having a lot of fun.
