When it comes to choosing packing peanuts for shipping something fragile, the most environmentally friendly choice is biodegradable. But while these eco-friendly mini cushions are easy to find and are made from starch, which instantly degrades in water, they can also be more expensive. If you're on a budget, your next "lighter green" option is to look for polystyrene packing peanuts that are green in color. These reusable peanuts are less expensive and are made with 70% recycled materials.
