Inspired by: I was originaly inspired to develop a secondary use for waste expanded polystyrene packaging material when I worked as a truck driver for a local tv and appliance store. I saw firsthand 40 yard dumpsters full being trucked off, when I asked the driver where it went to, he replied and said he dumped into a local landfill.
With that knowledge I decided it was high time someone found a use for this material besides landfills; I decided to be that someone. And it was in that moment that my future changed, my mind was set on a goal.
That is what inspired me to develop and design this amazing new material.
