Polystyrene: Facts & Advantages
 

Polystyrene is a product that meets stringent US FDA standards for food contact packaging:
FDA 21 CFR 177.1640

Today’s Polystyrene Packaging is Safe, Affordable and Environmentally Responsible.

 

– Environmentally Preferable

• A Lighter Carbon Footprint – Foam polystyrene cups weigh between two and five times less than comparable paper packaging products. This means fewer air emissions when transporting products
 

• An Energy Saver – A polystyrene foam food box requires significantly less energy to produce than a similar size pulp (paper / bagasse / EFB food box. Decreasing energy usage is considered one effective way to slow global warming.
 

• A Smart Choice for Recycling – Recycled polystyrene represents an emerging market. A number of municipalities are instituting effective programmes to reclaim this valuable resource. Post-consumer recycled polystyrene in some cases becomes “green building” construction products. Most single-use, coated paperboard foodservice packaging materials are not recycled because the coating and paper cannot be separated economically.
 

• The Landfill Myth – Polystyrene is not “filling up” landfills. In fact, polystyrene foodservice packaging currently accounts for less than 1 percent by weight land-filled materials.
 

• Contributes LESS Greenhouse Gases – Coffee lovers may be surprised to learn that one average weight polystyrene foam cup produces significantly less greenhouse gas emissions than two average weight coated paperboard cups or one average weight coated paperboard cup with a sleeve

 

– Designed with Food Safety in Mind

• Clean, Sanitary and Non-Porous – Polystyrene foodservice products can help in providing sanitary foodservice and preventing the spread of disease.

Reusable need washing and drying – the plate and utensils you used earlier today were once used by someone else.
 

• Saves Resources – Reusable require water and energy to clean. Using polystyrene foodservice packaging conserves these important resources
 

• Insulative - Warm foods stay warm and cold foods stay cold for a longer time. Fresh foods stay fresh. From organic salads to spicy chili, polystyrene packaging offers more convenience and dining enjoyment for people on the go.
 

• Light-weight - It protects valuable shipments without adding significant weight.
 

• Convenient - Nothing else offers the combination of strength, lightness and durability to protect valuable objects from crystal to computers, from morning coffee to salad at lunch!
