THE SOAP OPERA purchases next to no packaging materials. We simply reuse what is shipped to us. The Styrofoam “peanuts” you receive are completely reusable (a form of recycling).
Recycling Styrofoam “peanuts” is easy: First, save them up, then call any of the local “packaging services” listed in your yellow pages. All packaging businesses will gladly accept your recycled material and reuse it. We can all do our part to keep this material from entering the waste stream by recycling it…starting today.
At The Soap Opera we also reuse almost every cardboard box that we receive with our incoming freight. We use these boxes and cartons and shipping materials to ship orders to you. And your community will likely accept this cardboard for local recycling.
Interestingly, at The Soap Opera the balance between incoming and outgoing “peanuts” and cardboard usually matches almost perfectly, and remarkably it has remained this way for almost 40 years suggesting many TONS of material has been used again and again by us!
