What are Packing Peanuts?
Packing peanuts tend to refer to small pieces of foam that are used when shipping or packing goods to provide a protective layer and fill space. Traditionally they are made of foam, but here at Smith Packaging, our peanuts are earth-friendly and biodegradable. They are placed inside boxes and work to cushion the item that has been packed, reducing the risk of bumps and scrapes and making sure that the item doesn’t knock around inside the box.
Who Needs Packing Peanuts?
Packing peanuts are an awesome solution when you’re seeking a safer way to send goods. They work for businesses both big and small that are shipping products out to customers. They also work for individuals who may be transporting their own goods or putting delicate items into storage.
Basically, any time you’re putting something into a box, packing peanuts can be used to fill the gap and create a snugger space for your item. Businesses may turn to packing peanuts over something like bubble wrap because it’s a more cost-effective solution and doesn’t add to the weight of a parcel. While packing peanuts were once considered to be a non-eco-friendly solution, the introduction of green biodegradable peanuts has changed all of that.

At Smith Packaging, we take great pride in being as sustainable as possible. Wherever we can, all our products are made from recyclable materials, can be recycled, and are eco-friendly. The same goes for our packing peanuts, too.
Produced from plant-based starch, these peanuts can either be re-used time and time again, or they can easily be recycled or composted without causing damage to the environment and ending up in our oceans. You can pick from a range of sizes when it comes to our packing peanuts, and they arrive in a perfectly reusable box too.
