Styrofoam Peanut Drop Offs
Ever opened a package and had what feels like a million of those Styrofoam peanuts come tumbling out? I certainly have. You can always re-use the peanuts, and torture the next person that you send a package to, but if you aren't mailing packages to anyone that you are annoyed with, you may want to check out the Plastic Loose Fill Council's website. You can search by state or zip code to find nearby places that will take your Styrofoam peanuts and reuse them! That way, you can save plastic from being put in landfills, and you don't have to deal with a bunch of peanuts floating around your garage until you get around to using them. Pin It Now!
