The Life Cycle of an Airpop Box

The Life Cycle of an Airpop Box 


  • Tiny grains of styrene are expanded using steam. The expanded beads are then moulded into boxes

  • Our Airpop boxes are used as packaging to transport produce, seafood and fragile items like wine and pharmaceuticals around New Zealand and the world

  • EPS can be recycled at recycling centres located across New Zealand and internationally 

  • It is often compressed first into a solid block

  • Then either granulated or melted and pelletised to reuse as Polystyrene (PS)

  • Products made using recycled EPS include, coat hangers, picture frames and engineered timbers
