Packing Peanuts - Styrofoam

Styrofoam peanuts are expanded polystyrene plastic shaped into peanut-sized pellets meant for protecting goods during shipment.

Store and save in a large garbage bag (clear is desirable). Post online for reuse - to use for moving or packing delicate items, along with any air pillows and bubble wrap. Packing and shipping stores that reuse these may or may not have space - consider contacting them before you go.
