What are packing peanuts?
When it comes to business shipping solutions, packing peanuts give your shipment the protection it needs to withstand the journey ahead and are often at the top of the list next to packing tape, cardboard boxes and other packaging supplies. They can buffer fragile items and fill open spaces to prevent items from moving during transportation. The contoured shape of packing peanuts helps prevent packing fill from settling, thereby providing the required cushioning for fragile items. While packing material is often made from foam, biodegradable packing peanuts are made from plant-based content. Anti-static peanuts can help make packing your shipments more secure and less of a hassle.

Are packing peanuts recyclable?
Although recycling standards vary from state to state, many packaged peanuts are recyclable and can be taken to a local drop-off center; recycling is a quick, simple way to dispose of loose fill. Other solutions include donating peanuts - many companies will take the packing material they’ve included with your package back and reuse them for other orders, and local shipping companies might also be glad to take them off your hands. Also, if you know anyone that’s planning a big move, they may appreciate your no-longer needed packing peanuts for the extra protection they can provide.
