Our Commitment to the Environment
At the Anime Corner,
we believe that all businesses have certain responsibilities which need to be taken very seriously. One of which is
to ensure that your orders arrive in perfect condition, as well as taking into
consideration our responsibility to our environment. As an internet retailer, we do our part by using
recycled boxes and packaging materials when possible.
At the Anime Corner Store, we use boxes and paper products made from at least 25-30% recycled paperboard, as well as recycled plastic packaging and other materials. Virtually every AnimeCornerStore.com order is shipped in a corrugated container composed of 25 to 30 percent postconsumer recycled material. Once used, these containers are 100 percent recyclable for use in the manufacture of other paper products. Corrugated shipping containers are one of the most commonly accepted materials by either curbside recycling programs or at recycling centers nationwide.
Some shipments will contain green Flo-Pak polystyrene loose fill packing material, commonly known as peanuts. They're made from 100 percent recycled material (waste polystyrene), are nontoxic, and contain no substances--such as CFCs--that are harmful to the earth's ozone layer. They are the lightest loose fill material available, and lower weight = lower freight truck carbon emissions into the air. Best yet, they're 100 percent recyclable.
Check with your curbside recycling program to determine whether it accepts plastic peanuts. If it doesn't, peanuts can be recycled at thousands of locations nationwide, including many local pack-and-ship stores and gift shops. (These stores will often also accept and reuse your boxes.)

So whether you notice or not, we don't mind. We care, and when companies care about what
they do, what they sell, and how they do business, we all win, and that's all that really matters!
