for life

At HMP our focus is on becoming a part of the global circular economy.
Ensuring that the Airpop Polystyrene boxes we make will go on to have another life. 


We are proud to be part of a network of Expanded Polystyrene recycling partners across New Zealand and the world. Working together to support the recovery of our Airpop products at the end of their useful lives.


Our Airpop Engineered Air boxes are 98% air. Only 2% of a typical box is material. This makes Airpop a uniquely resource-efficient packaging material with a small carbon footprint.


All HMP Airpop products are 100% recyclable. Airpop Polystyrene can be recycled multiple times.


Boxes that have been collected for recycling are usually compressed first into a solid block. Then either granulated or melted and pelletised to reuse as Polystyrene. Recycled Polystyrene products include coat hangers, picture frames and engineered timbers.
