Ah, so much better than foam peanuts!
We hate packing peanuts. Hate. Them. There is nothing quite as frustrating as getting a package and tearing it open only to have little white fluffs o' frustration explode all over your living room like some kind of crazy pi?ata. Rather than getting to play with whatever fun thing you just received, you spend the next 20 minutes playing pick-up-sticks with foam peanuts before your cat inhales one and you end up at the after-hours pet ER for 11 hours (do I sound bitter? Sorry about that).
While we still have some leftover peanuts sneaking their way into SparkFun packages, we're happy to now ship with the fantastic paper from Geami - crinkly, shipping material goodness. This stuff is so much easier to get into than traditional packaging materials - making your electronic goodies that much easier to get to! It doesn't hurt that Geami products are compostable and recyclable - much rejoicing!
Here are a few pictures of just how much the shipping department enjoys the new material!
