Your packing materials may look a little different because this is not their first use! And we hope this is not their last! We are always striving for more ways to be eco-friendly. One of those is making sure we only use filler that is on its second + use. You can help this packing filler continue on its journey by reusing it in so many different ways.
Use it as a window cleaner (lint-free!).
Lay it as a protective surface for those messy art projects.
Take it outside to the compost bin.
Tear it up to use as a natural weed block.
Pack and protect your own items.
You can always recycle it.
Gift it in your local Buy Nothing group https://buynothingproject.org/
Delicate potted plants can benefit from protection from cold air by lining the inside of their pots with bubble wrap or over their heads on chilly nights.
Drop off at local coop to be used to protect cold food prepped for delivery.
Check Craigslist for neighbors who are moving and looking for packaging material.
Use it to pack your own items.
Bubble wrap your windows to save on heat
Stuff handbags and shoes that are going to be stored with it so they keep their shape.
Drop off at any UPS Store or Fedex Store for reuse.
Our reused (and reusable) filler is just one way A Simple Planet is committed to keeping single-use items from being produced and out of our landfills.
