  • EarthAware Biodegradable and Recyled AirPouch

    Biodegradable and Recycled air pillows for void-fill packing - Environmentally-friendly and system-matched for guaranteed performance

    The AirPouch Express 3 Void-fill System produces strong, durable air pillows that provide protection while reducing packing and shipping costs. Only AirPouch pillows offer our exclusive EZ-Tear™ Perforations, which allow quick and easy pillow separation for highly productive, ergonomic handling. These specially designed perforations also allow more air into each pillow, providing a better yield and a lower cost per cubic foot. Biodegradable and Recycled air pillows are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional poly packing materials.

    Biodegradable DuraClear™ 2000 (EGDC) is a linear low density polyethylene that contains a proprietary additive that causes biodegradation of the poly in nine months to five years, depending on exposure conditions. Material performance properties and shelf life remain in tact, as biodegradation only occurs when in contact with other biodegrading material, such as the conditions found in landfills, home and commercial composting. EGDC pillows biodegrade in both aerobic (with the presence of free oxygen) and anaerobic (without the presence of free oxygen) conditions.

    Recycled RGT film is made with recycled bag and pillow material. It is designed to provide a cost-effective alternative to other sustainable products when color uniformity is a secondary performance requirement. RGT is fully opaque and offers good durability.

    Both EGDC and RGT pillows offer excellent printing characteristics, and come in easily recognizable green shades for end-user awareness. Like all polyethylene materials, EarthAware™ pillows can be repeatedly recycled.
