Change of legislation the grace period is over in exporting to New York; don’t get stung with a fine.

bann expandable polystyrene foam

Recently New York has became another major

city to join a growing group of cities in banning expandable polystyrene foam

(EPS). In use today EPS products are as such; Cups, bowls, plates, take away

containers, trays and most important to our customer base packing peanuts.

Reasons why?

In the US it is marketed under the name

Styrofoam invented in 1941. It is estimated that Americans alone throw away 25

billion polystyrene coffee cups a year.

It is through one simple fact like this

that make the issue stand out, especially considering that polystyrene is a

form of polythene it is difficult to recycle.

How does this affect our customers or us?

 Well as a packaging supplier, a common

product is AÎÌøloos fill® polystyrene which has been used for years by companies

to pack items. In the AÎÌøUS’ they refer to this product as packaging AÎÌøpeanuts’ as

it is made out of polystyrene it has now been banned

 If you export to New York you have to be

careful, as of the 1st July the New York Port authority. Set the ban

and gave companies 6 months to comply or fines will apply. That grace period is

now over.


If for your packaging operation, loose fill

chips are your preference. There is good news, our AÎÌøpackaging Peanuts are made

from starch, not polystyrene. Which makes them 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable.

So don’t run the risk, if shipping to New York we advice putting some proof of

this in the parcel.
