Since the mid-19th century we’ve transformed flimsy sheets of paper into a rigid, stackable, cushioning form of packaging. And we never stopped with our fascination and magnifeco imagination for the uses of corrugated fiberboard – a.k.a. cardboard.

Cats love the texture and feel of cardboard, and the Caboodle Corrugated Habitat for Cats has lots of edges that cat’s love to rub on and groom their fur. These durable and expandable three-level structures feature peek-a-boo holes and customizable passageways, made of 350 lb. double-wall corrugated cardboard that’s manufactured in the U.S. with 40 percent recycled content. Nontoxic soy-based inks are used for printing, and all byproducts from the process—including the inks—are recycled afterwards. Capable of supporting combined weights of more than 65 lbs., Caboodle habitats can be connected to create larger structures; they can also be decorated with markers, pens, pencils and stickers. $29.95 USD. Ships everywhere.

The Belkiz Feedaway is a cardboard portable feeding chair that is easy to assemble for toddlers up to 20 months of age or up to 20kg. Ideal for temporary and commercial use, the Feedaway is safe, strong, folds up easily and quickly and stores away in a tiny space. Made from recycled Visy cardboard, it comes with its own 3 point safety harness and recycled cardboard carry box that is strong enough to withstand the rigours of travel by car, train or airplane. Feedaway also fits in a large suitcase. Can be recycled after use. $39.95 AUD. Available at Low & Behold, email for shipping outside Australia.
