When you find yourself in a survival situation, you need to have the knowledge to make use of what you can find. In the woods or a more rural environment, the resources available to you may be different than the ones you’ll find in a more urban environment.
One of the items that is easily overlooked as a survival resource is cardboard. Cardboard comes in many forms and shapes and is often readily available in an urban environment. We’ve included 10 Ways to Use Cardboard for Survival below.
1. For Shelter
We’ve all seen the homeless people using cardboard boxes for shelter in the city alleyways or under bridges. In truth, when protected from direct exposure to wind and rain on either side by buildings or other structures, a cardboard box can be a temporary shelter. This is because it’s easier to heat a small confined space than a larger space. It’s not ideal of course, and only works for survival if you have cardboard available around you, but it’s better than nothing.
