The Environment

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. 

Our Shipping Supplies - A Method to Our Madness...

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.)

packing peanuts, just call toll free 1-800-828-2214!

Other Ways to Recycle Your Peanuts:

  • Do you ever sell anything on E-Bay or another online site? Instead of purchasing new packing materials, why not reuse the box and filler materials you received from your recent AnimeCornerStore.com orders?

  • Check with a local elementary school or senior art program. The Flo-Pak peanuts used in some of our packages are nontoxic and safe for use in elementary school art projects, collages, etc.

  • Use Flo-Pak peanuts in your plant containers. Lining the bottoms of large planters with rocks provides excellent drainage, but rocks are heavy. Loose fill plastic peanuts, however, are lightweight and provide equally good drainage. They are nontoxic and won't harm your plants or flowers.

  • Use Flo-Pak peanuts as filler material. They can be used to safely fill beanbag chairs and other items.

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!
