Celebrating Xmas with EPS
We bet that you didn’t know that Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) can be used to produce Christmas decorations. EPS is a versatile and lightweight material, which is ideal for producing large snowflakes or even Christmas trees.
For instance, you might want to save a tree and opt for a Christmas tree produced from EPS. These are easy and fun to assemble, consisting of only a few parts. The whole tree is completed by the push-fit tip and a decorative Christmas star. And it’s infinitely lighter than a typical artificial tree because EPS is composed of 98% air.
EPS can also be molded to produce decorations such as snowflakes, stars, or reindeers. These are ideal for you to self-decorate. There is even a guide for you to make your own decorations. Just grab an EPS globe and surround it with a thick string until the whole ball is covered. You will then be able to decorate your tree with festive baubles.
EPS decorations are also perfect for Christmas window displays, for example snowflakes and lettering of about 15 to 60 cm size, or more.
You can store these items for many Christmases to come and reuse them, like other EPS products. However, if you decide to discard them, please do so after removing other material from them. EPS is separately collected for recycling in an ever-increasing number of regions across Europe, such as in Denmark, Sweden and the United Kingdom. This of course also includes any EPS packaging that helped in particular larger electronics, which you gave or got as a present, arriving safely at your home.
Smart Packaging Europe wishes you a festive holiday period!
