Deerfield, Ill., -- Pregis Corp. has commercialized another protective packaging first—black bubble air cushioning with high recycled content.  Astro-Bubble® Renew™ has been reformulated to give brand owners a new, more elegant way to cushion their products throughout the distribution chain, while also providing environmental benefits via recycled content.
