We use tons of packaging peanuts, so switching to an eco-friendly alternative was a priority. Since late 2006, every CandleScience order has been packed with bio peanuts.
Bio peanuts are made from entirely renewable resources and are 100% bio-degradable and compostable. While we encourage customers to reuse the peanuts, if they do end up 'in the wild' they don't harm the environment.
We were also happy to discover that our bio peanuts are not only good for the environment, but they’re also safe for pets too. One of our customers, Tammy, shared a great story with us about her dog, Chester, that we've shared below.
