Mythconception

Insulating foam is plastic and therefore bad.

 

Fact

Insulating foam is made of 98% air with an attractive environmental footprint, as it uses a low amount of energy, water and minimal raw material to manufacture a high value, reusable box.

Mythconception

Insulating foam is not recyclable.

 

Fact

Insulating foam is 100% recyclable! Unlike other popular packaging, it is commercially viable to recycle insulating foam. The recycling process is both clean and simple, without any run-off or toxic sludge.

Mythconception

When burning, it emits toxic fumes.

 

Fact

Foam is completely inert and non-toxic and at its end of life – after many lives – it is used in municipal waste-to-energy programs for its high calorific value. It emits less toxic gases and fumes than ‘natural’ materials such as wood, wool and cork. See how Sweden does it.

Mythconception

Expensive to store and transport.

 

Fact

Insulating foam is no longer disadvantaged by its bulk. Due to their durable and multi-use hinges, our revolutionary boxes fold flat for up to 65% reduction in the empty packaging volume. Our boxes, made of 98% air, are incredibly light and provide savings in fuel consumption.

Mythconception

Insulating foam is toxic.

 

Fact

It’s made of 98% air, is inert and non-toxic. It has FDA approval for food contact and has been a trusted, reliable, proven method for safely transporting pharmaceuticals and food, such as seafood, for over 70 years. It is also commonly used in soil as an aerator.

Mythconception

Insulating foam contains CFCs and HCFCs.

 

Fact

Insulating foam is completely free of CFCs and HCFCs. At no time in their life cycle do our boxes contain any CFCs or HCFCs. The blowing agent typically used in particle foams has an “ozone depletion potential” of zero and has no effect on the upper ozone layer.
