What to do with those plastic packing peanuts: Okay, so I decided to shop online and the boxes have started to arrive. Which led me to wonder what to do with all those plastic peanut packing things. It appears there’s a trade association called the Plastic Loose Fill Packaging Council and they run the Peanut Hotline, 800-828-2214, which is the national reuse program for plastic packing peanuts. No kidding. There are over 1,500 collection sites in the US. Use the database on their website to find one close to you. Here’s some more about packing peanuts.
(I wonder if there is a Bubble Wrap Council.)
