Those pesky shipping 'peanuts'

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

Peanuts: Those packing foam-ish, stick to everything and get everywhere packing fillers.  What to do with them, even if they’re made out of recyclable material?  I pack mine in clear plastic bags (recycled ones of course) and drop off at the nearest shipping office or supply store.  Same for other packing materials, as long as they are clean, consider passing them on.  To just recycle or throw away, isn’t giving these useful materials a chance to have a longer life cycle.  Shops are usually happy to take them.  Otherwise save and use for future packing, or share with family and friends who might be able to use them especially around the holidays.
