Packing Peanuts

  • The polystyrene peanuts or more popularly known as the packing peanuts are a professional and clean way of filling the spaces withing your packing boxes. These are used to cushion your belongings and prevent breakage of your things and valuables. Their shape are made to interlock when compressed and free flow when not compressed. You can use packing peanuts over and over without loosing their protecting effect. The disadvantages of using packing peanuts is that they take hundreds of years to breakdown. That is why it is advisable to keep using and recycling the packing peanuts.


  • One of the greatest benefits of using newspapers is that they are often free. You can find a lot of old and used newspapers from your friend or family or newsagents, and they may be willing to give it for free. Unlike the polystyrene peanuts, newspapers quickly decompose which leave little damage to the environment. The best way to use the newspapers is by shredding them to fill out the spaces and gaps within your packing boxes. This will help prevent any absorption of shipping odors. The only problem with using newspapers maybe the transferring of ink. Since the newspapers are compact during the shipping,t they’d be pressed tightly which transfers the ink to your belongings.
