KINGSEY FALLS, QC, May 15, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Cascades is launching its new line of moving boxes made in Québec from corrugated board containing 80% recycled materials—just in time for July 1st! Whether you are packing up a large house or a small apartment, you can now purchase boxes in small quantities, which until now have been available only to companies for industrial packaging.

Renowned for their strength and assorted sizes designed specifically for moving, Cascades offers peace of mind to thousands of tenants and new home-owners, by delivering just the right number and sizes of boxes needed straight to their door! The boxes are available in standard sizes commonly used by moving companies: 1.5 ft3, 2 ft3, 3 ft3, 4 ft3, and 5 ft3.

"We are pleased to make these boxes available to the general public. Thanks to these boxes, we have built a strong reputation with many customers in the industrial sector. In addition to our offer of customized home delivery, we are proud to be offering a quality product at very competitive costs: $0.93 to $1.89 per package depending on the format," explained Marc-André Dépin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Norampac, a division of Cascades.

Cascades moving boxes are available at the Boutique Cascades (, where you'll also find many eco-friendly products such as facial tissue, paper towels, bathroom tissue, office papers and even children's games!

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres. Cascades employs more than 12 000 men and women, who work in over a hundred modern and versatile production units in North America and Europe.
