Biodegradable Super 8® loosefill is the next generation of sustainable packaging materials. From manufacturing to disposal, Super 8 is made to provide superior product protection while being environmentally friendly packaging. It is the only biodegradable packaging loosefill made from 100% recycled polystyrene that includes post-consumer polystyrene foam packaging that would otherwise end up in the waste stream. If not recycled, Super 8 loosefill will decompose completely within 9 to 60 months in the presence of microorganisms, whether it is sent to a landfill, or ends up as litter in the soil. Not only is Super 8 loosefill packing material truly biodegradable packaging, but it is cost effective while providing superior product protection.
Super 8 loosefill is also recyclable packaging and can be reused many times. This eco-friendly packaging is collected at over 1,500 locations in the US for reuse. It can be returned for recycling to locations listed in the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers drop-off, or mail-in program. It comes in an easy to identify, light green color for customer awareness. Only green colored loosefill in the shape of a figure 8 is biodegradable packing peanuts and eco-friendly packaging.
