Deerfield, IL —Pregis Corp. is launching Astro-Bubble® Green, the first-ever air-cushioning bubble to contain up to 40% recycled content, but no less than 30% (depending on post- and pre-consumer waste material supply availability). Astro-Bubble® Green has been engineered to incorporate high levels of postconsumer recycled (PCR) content without losing product integrity (such as air retention within the bubble). The air cushioning bubble is made from up to 20% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content and up to 20% industrial scrap. Additionally, an organic green dye is used to create a transparent visual cue that the product is an environmentallyconscious alternative.

“At Pregis, we are committed to providing our customers with environmentallyresponsible products and practices. We believe that recycling post-consumer waste is a crucial step in achieving sustainability goals and we have worked hard toward securing a supply source for this product line,” says Josephine Lee, marketing director, Pregis Protective Packaging North America.

Ideally suited as a surface cover and void-fill, the new air-cushioning bubble product line protects fragile items via both coextruded, linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE)/nylon and monolayer LLDPE alternatives. Additionally, four different bubble sizes (ranging from 1/8- to ½-inch diameter) are available in both coex and monolayer toaddress a wide variety of packing requirements. (Both lines are also available in standard and economy grades, depending on the desired thickness of the bubble material.)

Pregis’ Astro-Bubble® Green air cushioning offers a smart, lightweight, clean and flexible option to other protective packaging alternatives. Market segments targeted by the product line include: aerospace, agriculture/produce, automotive, doors/building material, electronics/appliances, food, fulfillment/mail order, furniture, glass/china, industrial equipment/supplies, jewelry, medical, military/government, moving and storage, pharmaceuticals, publishing, retail and transportation.
