Packaging and the Environment
Foam-Control EPS always comes in greenFoam-Control EPS helps make your packaging parts environmentally friendly. It’s 100% recyclable. It can be ground into granules and reincorporated into new Foam-Control EPS products. Or it can be thermally processed into a resin that’s used to manufacture other new products.
Additional Environmental Benefits:
- 100% Recyclable
- Is inert and stable
- Does not produce contaminating leachates
- Has never contained CFC, HCFC, or HFC, all of which are harmful to the earth's ozone layer
- Promotes recyclable and reduced packaging.
The Environmental Role of PackagingCushion protective packaging has an important environmental role - to reduce damage and breakage to manufactured products. Broken, unuseable products end up in landfills, which are rapidly filling up. Products damaged in shipment need to be remanufactured. Additional raw materials are used to replace them. More fossil fuels have to be burned, creating carbon dioxides and sulfur dioxides that pollute our environment.
Very little energy is used to produce cushion packaging, but it protects many valuable products that require high energy to manufacture. By giving optimum damage protection, Foam-Control EPS reduces the need to remanufacture and reship. By reducing product damage, Foam-Control EPS saves resources.
Foam-Control EPS is committed to providing the highest quality products and services. We're proud of our recycling achievements and are committed to work harder for the protection of our environment.
