15 Biodegradable Products You’ll Use by Jessica Hodges
Care Mail Peanuts -Made from corn and potato starch. Dissolves in water and won’t pollute ground water.
Please take note of the white and green color theme found in this post. It’s quite refreshing and clean, right? This post is inspired by a post I read awhile ago on Design*Sponge and by my thoughts about how important it is to buy items that will disappear when they are thrown away. I love recycling and I love reusing items but some items do not have a second life. I also love the idea that things can behave just like plants and natural stuff and disintegrate away. We carry lots of green office supplies and recycled office supplies on our site but today we’re focusing on the products that will disappear when you’re done.
