Expanded polystyrene (Styrofoam) transport packaging is smart, safe and sustainable. With Styrofoam cushioning you can achieve less weight and lower damage rates which translate into positive sustainability factors across the board. Styrofoam can be same-recycled into a product of equal value or up-cycled into a product of higher value. And, Styrofoam is often less energy intensive than alternative choices.

Styrofoam demonstrates favorable environmental performance in most aspects, making it a worthy consideration for product shipments that require superior protection.

Safe & Healthy Throughout Its Life Cycle

• Made of 98% air, Styrofoam is an inert material without harmful chemicals that off-gas or leach during its use or disposal.
• Styrofoam is widely recognized as a safe choice for use in food contact packaging by government regulatory agencies throughout the world.

Meets Performance & Cost Market Criteria

• Because of its versatility Styrofoam offers significant savings in design and development, product assembly and distribution costs.
• With customized packaging designs Styrofoam delivers exactly the right amount of product protection. Its high tensile strength and cellular structure give this lightweight product exceptional cushioning properties.

Maximizes Renewable or Recycled Source Materials

• Recycled Styrofoam is used in both closed-loop and openloop processes to make a variety of applications from recycled-content foam packaging to durable goods and innovative new building products.
• More half of all Styrofoam collected for recycling was used to make recycled-content packaging.
