We are committed to protecting the environment and use only 100% environmentally responsible packaging, that is 100% biodegradable and where possible made from renewable resources.
For example the packaging pellets we use with most orders is made from corn starch and as such is completely biodegradable. Decompose? Just add water and watch the reaction. in a sewage treatment plant. That is hardly necessary, however.
You can just dump them on the ground or in a compost pile, and they will disappear readily. The good news is that even if some or the starch is not removed, there are 'billions and billions' of microbes in the environment waiting to have starch for 'lunch'. You can even eat them without any noticeable effect - although we do not know enough about this so DO NOT recommend it. However we know the pellets have been the subject of pranks, one such being leaving a handful in a bowel on the office kitchen table and watching them disappear.
We however stay strictly to using them to 100% protect items you order so they arrive in a 100% new condition - something we guarantee with every time you order from us.
The 'bubble-wrap' we use is also 100% biodegradable, both protecting the products we send out and the environment. We usually use this with books to provide a bullet-proof buffer against damage or to keep items stable/from moving in transit to you,
