What is EPS?
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) remains one of the most common fillers for packaging on an industrial scale, because it is a lightweight material that can be manufactured into a multitude of different products. It became popular due to its high performance and ability to be recycled. It is the unfortunate reality that fillers prior to EPS would simply add to the world’s waste without the possibility of reuse.
Lamentably, EPS packaging is an outdated form of disposable packaging that will eventually become solid waste. Despite this material being recyclable, EPS recycling programs vary from one community to the next and may be limited in your area.
What is PakNatural™ Loose Fill?
PakNatural™ loose fill is manufactured by Sealed Air and is available to customers through Markey Paper and Packaging, Inc. PakNatural™ is a non-petro chemical protein based loose fill, which simply means that it is made from non-food renewable materials, so it is both compostable and biodegradable.
This loose fill was designed with the wellbeing of our planet in mind; it is perfect for our customers who are concerned with waste, and want to promote a more desirable environmental image for their business.
Why Does Markey Paper and Packaging, Inc. Promote Switching to PakNatural™ for Loose Fill?
We stand behind this product for a number of reasons, and not just those associated with environmental concerns! PakNatural™ loose fill is comparative to EPS products in performance excellence, efficiency, and cost. Some of the remarkable qualities PakNatural™ possesses for packaging, include:
- Anti-static properties
- Proper cushioning
- Protection for products
- Low levels of dust generation
