Here’s why Molded Pulp makes so much sense:

Molded Pulp EPS
Effect on the
Compostable and Biodegradable Remains in landfill forever
Molded Pulp Cost Less than EPS Costs rising due to oil and gas price increases
Cushioning Deflects, dissipates
and reduces shock
Reduces shock
Price Fluctuation Minimal: not linked to corrugated, gas, oil or resin prices Prices rise dramatically with gas, oil and resin price fluctuations
Nests and stacks, saving 50% to 75% warehouse space and freight costs Does not nest, increasing warehouse and freight costs
Dampens vibration up to 3 times
more effectively than EPS
Attenuates vibration, causing
potential damage to components
Durability Does not break apart Breaks and flakes apart easily
Flexibility Geometry of ribs allows for compression and rebound Temperature affects flexibility
Static Naturally static free and static neutral Creates static electricity, dust adhesion
of temperature
Unaffected by high or low temperatures Brittle and breaks easily at low temperatures; cushioning compromised at high temperatures
Assembly costs Less than EPS due to nesting ability More parts have to be handled per hour, due to not nesting
Tooling Lower cost than EPS Many cavities required for all set-ups
