What is biodegradable loose fill made from?

Boxtopia’s biodegradable packing peanuts are starch-based. They’re made from all natural products: maize grit (maize is a common crop plant), water and herbal extracts. These ingredients combine to form a spongy, polystyrene-like substance that dissolves into harmless substances when exposed to water.

For you and your customers, this is a bonus - you don’t even have to worry about throwing the packing peanuts into the correct bin! Simply chuck them out in the general waste and they’ll harmlessly dissolve as soon as they get a bit of rain.
