10 Alternative Packing Materials
- Saturday, 03 April 2010
Packing peanuts are the oil sludge of packing materials. If you have some lying around, reusing packing peanuts is always preferable to throwing them out, but if you've banished eco-unfriendly packing materials, there are plenty of alternatives that either make use of waste or provide a usable material for the recipient.
10 Alternative Packing Materials:
Newspaper: Balled up, torn into strips or just used to wrap items, your daily newspaper can be put to goo use as packing material (before it's ultimately recycled).
Magazines: Pages from magazines are great for separating breakables, and you can crunch them up just like you would a newspaper.
