RE: packing peanuts



Vendors:

FP International - http://www.fpintl.com/index.html
Look for Flo-Pak Bio 8 in Product Info

Eco-Friendly (National Starch and Chemical Co.) - http://www.eco-foam.com/friendly.htm

There's probably others, but these were a couple I found with a quick web search.

You can render the wastewater loading question moot by reusing or composting the packing peanuts instead of dissolving them down the drain.
