Protective packaging has the important environmental role of reducing damage and breakage to manufactured products.
Broken, unusable products end up in landfills, which are rapidly filling up.
Products damaged in shipment need to be re-manufactured.
Additional raw EPS is 100 percent recyclable, and can be recycled in various ways.
Recycled EPS is ground and reincorporated into new EPS products or thermally processed to make a resin that can be used to re-manufacture new products.
EPS manufacturing uses little energy and creates little pollution. EPS products save resources by reducing product damage through packaging.
