FILED IN:  Sustainability  > Strategy

Engineered to incorporate high levels of post-consumer recycled content (PCR) without losing product integrity, such as air retention within the bubble, the cushioning bubble is made from as much as 20% PCR content and 20% industrial scrap. Additionally, an organic green dye is used to create a transparent visual cue that the product is environmentally conscious. Suitable as a surface cover and as void-fill, the bubble product line protects fragile items via both coextruded, LLDPE/nylon and monolayer LLDPE alternatives. Available in 4 different bubble sizes, ranging from 1/8 in. to 1/2 in.
