Automated Packaging Systems: Biodegradable/recycled void fill
EarthAware™, from Automated Packaging Systems, is a line of eco-friendly bag film materials for its AirPouch void-fill packing systems.
EarthAware Biodegradable Film is a low-density polyethylene with a proprietary additive that causes biodegradation in 9 months to five years, depending on exposure conditions. EarthAware Recycled Film is made entirely from recycled pre-consumer bags and film scrap--a cost-effective alternative to other eco-friendly materials. EarthAware Biodegradable and Recycled Pillows are available in a standard green tint for customer awareness. Material comes fan-folded in boxes that contain 4000 linear feet of standard 1.5 mil material, and comes in 8-in. and 10-in. widths with a variety of standard lengths. EZ-Tear™ perforations enable quick and easy separation of the pillows.
