Our Packing Peanuts

Our Packing Peanuts

Published by N-essentials Team on 24th Jul 2018

Packing peanuts are one of the ways we use to pack your orders and make sure nothing breaks or is damaged during transit from our warehouse to your home! Most packing peanuts are made of styrofoam and are 98% air. However, they have a bad reputation for being harmful to the environment.

One of the frequently asked questions that we receive from our customers and followers is whether our packing peanuts are eco-friendly or not. You have asked and we have answered. Hope you enjoy watching the video.

We love and appreciate how environmentally conscious our customers are to ask us this question! It's become a normal and accepted fact that our environment needs to be looked after and that we all have to do our part in order to help make a difference, even if it's just a small change. We were more than happy to answer this question using a video to demonstrate why our packing peanuts are great packing resources for your orders.

To answer your questions in regards to our packing peanuts, we've created a YouTube video featuring our packing peanuts to explain how they're environmentally friendly and still a functional way to package our products for your orders.


In the video, you'll see that the packing peanuts are made of biodegradable materials and can be easily disposed of in an eco-friendly way. Not only are they reusable for you to use and are quite durable, but they're environmentally friendly in that they are water-soluble, compostable and Australian-made! As you can see for yourself in the video, after only a few minutes of being under running water - the 100% biodegradable packing peanuts we utilise begin to disintegrate and degrade in a safe way.


They are environmentally friendly in this way because they are made from natural, non-toxic sources, such as wheat and corn starch and they won't stick to clothes since they have no electrical charge - making it even easier to clean up after opening up an exciting order from N-essentials.

We hope this video provides you with all the information you need about our packing peanuts and reassures you that they are safe for the environment. We're super proud of how eco-friendly these packing peanuts are and what they provide to our business and our customers in the long term.

Please let us know if you have any other questions in future and we'll be sure to inform you of all the ways we're doing our bit to utilise environmentally-friendly products and processes.
