The future of sustainable building

saveBOARD is a sustainable building material made from waste such as long-life cartons, soft plastics and cups collected by Simply Cups. This low-carbon building material has no additives including zero glues, zero chemicals, zero adhesives, and no manufacturing waste; all off-cuts are re-used in saveBOARD manufacturing.

saveBOARD is a venture backed by Closed Loop.

Made from packaging

saveBOARD is made from waste: long-life milk cartons, soft plastics and paper cups. Traditionally, these materials are difficult to recycle and often sent to landfill. This technology has made it possible to reimagine these materials and create a truly sustainable and high performing alternative to plasterboard and other applications.

Cups are collected by Simply Cups.

Long-life milk cartons and soft plastics are collected from cafes, businesses and the general public.

Save tonnes of waste from landfill

saveBOARD will save up to 4,000 tonnes of waste going to landfill each year – and that number is expected to grow!

saveBOARD’s green credentials meet all obligations under 14G of the Building Act, reducing waste from the environment and up to 90% reduction in carbon.

All saveBOARD products are also recyclable* at our NZ or Australian saveBOARD locations. In addition, all offcuts and old boards are saved and are produced into new board products sending zero waste to landfill.
