Establishing a sustainable packing solution, benefiting our future.



Our Commitment

Twists is committed to being an eco-friendly company, doing our best to change the world.

A Part to Play

Here’s ours, what’s yours?

We believe that Twists can play a large part in the way the world thinks about plastic filler materials, and further the way the world looks at eco-friendly alternatives to everyday items. Twists can be used in so many applications, what will you come up with? Twists are made from post consumer recycled paper and do no harm to the environment. They can be recycled, re-used and even composted with no chemical signature. How can you make a difference? Start by ditching (recycling) your plastic foam packing peanuts, and switching to Twists.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Do all three by switching to Twists.

Twists are made from 100% post consumer recycled paper, ensuring no trees are harmed in the production of Twists. Twists are meant to be reused time and time again, unlike traditional “packing peanuts” which can break apart and create a mess, our Twists will hold up, and if they untwist, simply re-twist them! We hope to reduce the amount of Polystyrene used in the packing industry by switching to Twists.

Why not use Plastic Foam?

Did you know?

“Styrofoam” isn’t a material – it’s a brand name.
The proper term is Expanded Polystyrene (Plastic Foam).

Over 14 million US tons

of polystyrene (plastic foam) is produced each year in the world.1

Plastic Foam

takes between 500 & 1,000,000 years to biodegrade.2


takes between 2 – 5 months to biodegrade.2

40% of plastic produced is packaging, used just once and then discarded.3

It is estimated that less than 1% of all plastic foam is currently recycled.4

How does this affect my
World? Life? Future? Children? Health?

Our Oceans

Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic goes into the ocean.5

Plastics eventually photodegrade into smaller pieces that are ingested by our ocean life.6

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight).5

Plastic is found as far as 11km deep, meaning synthetic fibers have contaminated even the most remote places on Earth.5

That’s approximately 1800 hammer head sharks deep.

Plastic Foam will float in our oceans forever.

Our Landfills

2.3 million tons of Plastic Foam ends up in landfills per year.1

This accounts for about 30% of landfill space worldwide.1

Americans throw away 25 billion Plastic Foam coffee cups every year, enough to circle the earth 436 times.7

As of 2015, roughly

79% of plastic has ended up in landfills or the natural environment, 9% was recycled and 12% was incinerated.8

Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form.9
