Biodegradable Packing Peanuts
Packing fragile items for shipping and storage is challenging, and often, manufacturers involved in the production and design of such things resort to different materials and techniques to minimize damage to their finished product. Biodegradable packing peanuts or loose-fill packing peanuts are used to protect fragile items during shipping. These items perfectly fill the gaps of packaging to avoid the protected item from hitting corners or edges of boxes. At BlueRose Packaging, we provide biodegradable packing peanuts in bulk to assure competitive pricing. In addition, we can provide them in colors other than pink and white to meet your specific packaging requirements.
Benefits of Using Biodegradable Packing Peanuts
Biodegradable packing peanuts have gained immense popularity in recent years.
- Biodegradable Composition: Traditional packing peanuts were made of polystyrene foam or Styrofoam as they provide additional padding and protection to a packed product during transit. Although lightweight, these materials do not decompose quickly and end up floating in water bodies or landfills for several years. However, biodegradable packing peanuts are made from natural and non-toxic materials which quickly decompose when discarded after use. These packaging materials can be used several times before discarding.
- Highly Safe: Biodegradable packing peanuts possess shock absorption properties and can cushion fragile items. This packaging material creates a win-win situation for the shipper and buyer. The shipper can assure the product’s safety, and the buyer can expect to receive the product in good condition.
- Low Carbon Footprint: Packaging waste can add to your carbon footprint, especially the ones made from petroleum byproducts. With many businesses and customers seeking eco-friendly shipping options, we offer biodegradable packing peanuts that help them both lower their carbon footprint. Our packing peanuts are made from recycled and degradable materials. With biodegradable packing peanuts, one can be assured that less waste will be created. This will help them lower their carbon footprint effectively.
- Ideal for Packaging Electronics: Foam packaging peanuts are used for packaging various delicate items, including electronics. However, the foam produces a static charge that can easily damage electronic items such as TVs. For this reason, it is not recommended to package certain types of items. However, biodegradable peanuts are made from natural material, and have no static charges. This makes them an ideal item for packaging a wide range of electronics.
- Unaffected by Petroleum Costs: Increasing petroleum costs have been a concern for many competitors. Styrofoam used to make the peanuts is affected by increasing oil prices, which would subsequently skyrocket packaging prices. However, biodegradable packaging peanuts are made from natural materials, so they remain unaffected by any such price increase.
