Title:

ARE PACKING PEANUTS RECYCLABLE?

Description:

"Although packing peanuts may not seem like a huge threat to the environment, it is our job to dispose of them responsibly. When items like packing peanuts are not recycled or reused, they sit in our landfills, polluting the air and contaminating the soil. If we all took the time to reuse our materials, or at least recycle them, the world would be a better place for us all. Packing peanuts are recyclable, and reusable as well – so it is our duty to recycle them and reuse them. This is from an article that appeared on All Green Website: " – PowerPoint PPT presentation

1
ARE PACKING PEANUTS RECYCLABLE?
2
While packing peanuts technically can be
recycled, they are light weight, and there is a
large transport cost for these items.

Packing peanuts are color coated to let you know
if they will be biodegradable or if they are
mostly earth unfriendly.
4
These packing peanuts need to be recycled. Green
packing peanuts truly are green they are made
up of 70 recycled material and will biodegrade
easily.

If you are not sure what type of packing peanuts
you have, do a brief test Run the peanuts under
water for two minutes. If they break down under
water, you can use them as compost in your
gardening, or plant containers. If they do not
break down, you will need to recycle them.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) provides drop off
locations were you can recycle packing peanuts.

Although Packing Peanuts are Recyclable, Can We
Use Alternatives or Reuse the Peanuts?
  • Using the green peanuts as described above is
    also a favorable alternative to traditional
    packing peanuts.

DIFFERENT WAYS THAT WE CAN USE THE PACKING
PEANUTS AS ALTERNATIVES

    breakables it protects your things just as
    well.
  • Collect all of your packing peanuts and drop it
    off at a moving company such as the United Parcel
    Service.

    use them again next time you need to ship
    something or move.

    ice chests- simply throw some in a plastic bag
    into the cooler, then throw ice in around the
