Filled with Expanded Polystyrene
Expanded polystyrene or EPS is produced from crude oil. This wouldn’t be a great recommendation if the environmental impact were a consideration, but you may be surprised that EPS has good environmental credentials.
Expanded polystyrene is 98% air. The manufacturing process does not damage the environment and uses very little energy. It does not create much in the way of waste either.
EPS is mostly used as a building material where it is used for insulation, reducing energy consumption. Elsewhere it is used for packaging where it’s lightweight reduces fuel costs in transport. As food packaging, it helps reduce waste.
At the end of its life expanded polystyrene is recyclable. As the filler for bean bags, it’s a safe, effective and environmentally responsible choice.
Once your bean bag filler has reached the end of its life, it can be easily replaced. Refilling your bean bag with new beads will give it a whole new life.
