Probably some more cardboard will be used for the two smaller containers. Exactly how much depends on the exact shape of the containers.

Assuming the containers are geometrically similar, the ratio of their height (or any linear measurement) will be 1 : (cubic root of 2), or about 1 : 1.26. The ratios of the area are 1 : 1.262, while the ratio of their volumes are 1 : 1.263, making the volume-to-area ratio of the large container more favorable by a factor of 1.26. In other words, the smaller containers will use 1.26 times more cardboard. However, note the assumption (that the containers are similar). Also, how much more cardboard is used in absolute terms (for example, in square centimeters) will still depend on the exact shape.

I want to learn about recycling cardboard. Can someone help Greg?

The two main types of cardboard that are most likely to be recycled in your area are: Flat cardboard like shoe and cereal boxes and cardboard like what is often used in packaging. Make sure to contact your local recycling facility to see if they will take both of those types of cardboard and also inquire about wax covered cardboard like milk or juice cartons. Make sure you break down the cardboard before putting it in your recycling bin.

Why can't you recycle juice and milk cartons?

What and how to recycle is different depending on where you live. Asceptic packaging such as milk and juice cartons are indeed accepted or required for recycling in some locales. The paper is high-quality virgin stock, and there is often a layer of valuable foil in juice boxes. In NYC, milk or juice cartons and drink boxes are placed in the same (blue-labeled) bin with other beverage containers, bottles & jars, metal and foil; you'll find more info at In other places, all recyclables are collected in the same bin. Check with your local authorities.
