We are committed to maintaining a healthy environment. EFP’s environmental policy includes close monitoring of every aspect of our products' life cycles. We re-grind and re-use non-conforming recyclable material. As a member of the Alliance of Foam Packaging Recyclers (AFPR), EFP recycles over a half-million pounds of EPS packaging annually. We also encourage our customers to recycle, and are happy to supply a list of recycling centers throughout the U.S. if bringing the material to an EFP location isn't feasible.
The EFP environmental policy also takes into account the fact that foam takes less energy to manufacture (about one-sixth the energy needed to produce corrugated paper products) and results in fewer harmful chemicals during its production. In fact, EPS is made without ozone-depleting chemicals and contains no CFCs or HCFCs.
Because it's strong and lightweight, less foam is required to do the same job as paper materials. EPS makes up just .4% of the total municipal solid waste in this country, compared to 37% for paper and paperboard products.
At EFP, our environmental policy is important to us. As a member of the AFPR board, we play an integral part in organizing international recycling efforts. To get the facts about expanded foam and its role in the environment, please visit the AFPR website.
