At Plymouth Foam (PF), our pursuit to be industry leaders in technology and innovation has led to new, greener packaging solutions both businesses and consumers can support. Our PF trademark, Earthhide™, is an eco-friendly solution to meet protective packaging needs. From initial manufacturing in the USA to product use and disposal, this solution holds an ASTM D5511 compliant life cycle.
After use, Earthhide™ packaging materials can be disposed of in either a landfill or recycling center. While in a landfill, it is broken down into reusable methane via organic biodegradation. Then, the materials consuming the material via organic biodegradation produce humus and biogas for clean, reliable energy. In simple terms, it is an environmentally responsible choice for users.
