Enviro-friendly cushioning

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