Did you know: Foam recycling is available in Texas?

Explore the economic impact of foam.

The foam industry provides thousands of jobs across the country and saves consumers millions of dollars every year.

Businesses and government facilities from El Paso to Houston to Austin rely on foam. Alternative products don’t insulate nearly as well, they cost more, and in many cases, they generate more waste, while increasing air and water emissions over their life cycles.


Foam Across Industries

Education
A typical foam tray costs significantly less than a compostable tray – saving some school districts over a million dollars per year in material cost.
Healthcare
Most hospitals use polystyrene foam products to minimize exposure to bacteria and other foodborne pathogens.
Manufacturing
The PS foam manufacturing industry is dedicated to keeping costs low, increasing efficiency and excellence, and delivering solutions for economic growth.
Foodservice
Many restaurants and food trucks rely on the convenience, insulation properties, and high level of sanitation afforded by foam food packaging in providing healthy food to their customers.
Small Business
Many restaurants that use foam are considered small businesses. From an economic perspective, foam is often the most cost effective choice for small business owners.
Shipping
Because of its lightweight structure, polystyrene foam is a preferred protective packaging for use in shipping valuable items.
