Did you know that Avena Originals uses a Natural Packing Peanuts?

I am sure you have seen the white packing peanuts in your packages, but did you know these are not the Styrofoam peanuts, you may automatically assume they are?

Avena’s biodegradable packaging material, packing peanut, can be re-used, composted or simply disposed of by dissolving it in a sink or bath tub. These biodegradable packing peanuts eliminate the negative environmental impact of polystyrene peanuts, plastic bags and bubble wrap. It is also nontoxic, and as such, will not harm children or pets that may come into contact with the material. From the manufacturing process to the consumer’s home, these biodegradable packing peanuts minimize their environmental impact at every step.

“Avena only purchases and uses these 100% Natural Peanuts in all of our packaging processes, If you find plastic or paper, it was recycled from an incoming shipment from one of our suppliers.”

This is part of Avena commitment to our earth, and taking green actions to minimize our carbon footprint.

You can simply pour hot water over them, and watch them breakdown in front of your eyes.
