Q  What packing materials do you use?

A  Orders shipping from our warehouse are protected by all-natural corn starch pellets. While they resemble polystyrene or Styrofoam, this all-natural packing material solves two very important problems: It protects your shipment while protecting the environment. Corn starch pellets cushion items and fill the voids in packing boxes. Unlike petroleum-based plastics, corn starch pellets are derived from natural ingredients that are harmless to the environment and dissolve when exposed to water or rain. They can even be composted with other organic materials and used as a high-quality humus. Try it yourself! Drop a pellet in water and watch it disappear. Or, re-use them in your next outgoing package – they’re durable enough to be used again and again. CAUTION: Keep away from children. As with all packing materials, corn starch pellets can pose a choking hazard.
