LABRADA NUTRITION GOES GREEN WITH ECO-FRIENDLY
New ‘Packing Peanuts’ Offer a Biodegradable and
Non-Toxic Shipping Solution
Houston, Texas, May 11, 2010– This spring, Labrada Nutrition will help make the world a greener place by switching from traditional foam packing peanuts to starch-based, biodegradable packing peanuts. These materials, used to cushion customer orders during shipping, will be introduced in the second week of May.
Unlike their polystyrene counterparts that have been produced using harmful gases, Labrada Nutrition’s new packing peanuts come from crop-based sources. As a result, they help eliminate the negative environmental impacts of polystyrene peanuts, plastic bags, and bubble wrap. They are non-toxic, water-soluble, and harmless to children and pets that may accidentally ingest them.
“We are always looking for new ways to protect the environment, so the choice to switch to these eco-friendly shipping materials was easy,” said Lee Labrada, President and CEO of Labrada Nutrition. “In the future, we will continue to seek out new manufacturing and shipping processes that are both consumer and environmentally friendly.”
In a further effort to help sustain the environment, Labrada Nutrition uses corrugated shipment boxes that utilize recycled materials where possible.
