Protecting the Global Environment
with the Excellent Properties of EPS!

We, Japan Expanded Polystyrene Association (JEPSA), delivered the new slogan, “Protecting the Global Environment with the Excellent Properties of EPS!”. By using this slogan, we encourage a deeper understanding of EPS, which has many excellent and versatile properties.
