Why? Peanuts are great, but... they are a mess. The bags are bulky and difficult to store, the hopper takes time to fill, and they can be impossible to contain in one place. Even we will use them for packing to recycle them. But what a mess.Bubble wrap is another void fill method. A roll of bubble wrap is easier to handle than peanuts, cleaner to use, but it is even more difficult to handle from the point of use around a packing bench. Finding a place to hold the roll is a challenge, especially the larger bubble size where the diameter of the roll can be 4 foot in diameter. Another problem with peanuts and bubble wrap is the cost of shipping. As the buyer you are paying for empty space, hence the name void fill.You can always save the newspaper but the ink will end up on the packers hands and then on the products you are shipping.
