Learn about the eco-conscious disposal routes open to you with this new type of insulation found in Biodegradable EPS.

Option 1 – Recyclability

Recycling: preserving resources, reducing waste, and sustaining our planet

Did you know?

The material you are holding is recyclable – YES! Recycling EPS (Expanded Polystyrene), the material that has revolutionized the thermal packaging industry, is not only possible but also essential for a more sustainable future.

You can actively contribute to resource preservation by participating in EPS recycling programs. Many recycling centers and facilities accept EPS, so check with your local recycling services or nearby drop-off locations. EPS can be recycled into various new products, reducing waste and conserving resources. By recycling EPS, you’re diverting this versatile material from landfills and helping to reduce waste. It’s a small effort that goes a long way in promoting a circular economy and a healthier planet. Join us in our commitment to take on responsible packaging disposal practices by embracing EPS recycling today!

Option 2 – Biodegradability

Biodegradability: biodegradable EPS opens up an alternative disposal choice when recycling isn’t available to you

What’s the difference?

Most discarded plastics, like traditional EPS that’s not recycled ends up in landfill where it will remain indefinitely. However, naturally occurring microorganisms found in these landfills can actually break down biodegradable EPS material thanks to the unique chemistry of this insulation material. They combine with the material and break It down by more than 90% in under 4 years.*

What’s biodegradability?

Biodegradability is the ability of materials to be broken down naturally by microorganisms over time. In the context of waste management and landfills, biodegradability** refers to the capacity of waste materials to be decomposed by biological processes into simpler substances, such as water, carbon dioxide, and biomass.
