We’ve received quite a few packages recently and a few of them have been packed with styrofoam peanuts.

Now, we happen to know that the peanuts were reused … but still, they’re not exactly made out of the greatest stuff.

When we mail things, we generally use newspaper for packing (or old socks if we’re trying to be funny) … but, these are interesting.

Recocubes are made from recycled paper sludge compressed into cube form with added sugars, starches and B-12 (plant food vitamins). In other words, after you’ve gotten done reusing them, you can toss them on the compost pile.
