Cantarero Pallets renews pledge to the environment

Cantarero Pallets, Inc.

Our Commitment to the Environment

August 2023

Cantarero Pallets, Inc. is committed to managing our products in an environmentally friendly way. We buy and sell new, used and renewed wood pallets remanufactured from broken and discarded wood pallet depos.

Cantarero Pallets, Inc. recognizes that sustainability is an ongoing challenge for industry supply chains.

Renewable Resource

Wood pallets are made using sustainably sourced wood. The timber is often cut for other uses and the by-products are used for pallet construction. Pallet wood does not come from old-growth forests.

In 2020 there were over twice as many hardwood trees in the U.S. than there were 50 years earlier. Trees are a naturally renewable resource, and responsible management creates more carbon-capturing trees than it harvests.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

The most eco-friendly products are those that can be reused. Wood pallets can be used multiple times for their main purpose and be repurposed repeatedly. Cantarero Pallets, Inc. not only repurposes pallets but repairs and renews damaged pallets can be made into other shipping materials.

Reusing pallet wood reduces the purchase and consumption of materials that are not sustainably sourced and decreases our reliance on plastic.

Recycling pallet wood into products like mulch and animal bedding saves newly harvested timber for other uses.

Estimates are that about 93% of pallets in the United States are made of wood and that 95% of those pallets are recycled by companies, manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.

Wood Pallets are Biodegradable

The recycling and repair of broken and/or damaged wood has grown tremendously over the past 20 years. That alone made wood pallets increasingly environmentally friendly and extended their useful lives.

But at some point, pallet wood is not going to be useful anymore. When it reaches the end of its lifespan, a wood pallet does the most eco-friendly thing; it renews.
