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 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.
