We use Eco Friendly USPS shipping containers that are made from recycled cardboard and the peanuts you'll find in your package when shipped to you Eco Corn Starch Peanuts that dissolve in water if you should find Polystyrene peanuts in your package those are reused peanuts from our suppliers that ship to us.
So if you receive a Opas Shipment please reuse the peanuts or box and contribute to reduce shipping materials in our landfills. Peanuts have the tendency to be picked up by the slightest breeze and get blown all over our environment. Sadly, most of the peanuts sold nowadays are not biodegradable.
Most Peanuts are made of polystyrene. Polystyrene can be recycled, and has the number "6" as its recycling symbol. Polystyrene does not biodegrade, and is often abundant as a form of pollution in the outdoor environment, particularly along shores and waterways.
We do not encourage the use of regular Polypropylene bags because they will not biodegrade in nature. Our Soap bags and sleeves are 100% Vegetable Cellulose Bags and are 100% biodegradable. We are always improving our packaging and we strive to provide quality and eco friendly products.
We use Bubble Bags to ship our Glass Products. We do encourage recycling them or reusing them.
