They are Biodegradable.
Hello, Like many Mums out there I am a Mum who cares about the environment and who wants to leave a healthy world for my son and his multiple kids. (I'm dreaming he will have 2...or maybe 3.) So I try my hardest to not be wasteful.
At home we compost, we recycle, and I take my bag to the shops so I'm not using single use bags. If I do things that help care for the environment I think that will be something that Lucas will do too. Something that becomes part of his view of the world and part of his core values.
A large part of the Lucas loves cars brand is about quality, loving natural wood and reducing plastic. And because it is part of my life, it is also part of the store. We don't try to be eco friendly, we simply hate being wasteful and that makes us eco friendly.
We thought we'd share with you one of the things that we are doing as a small business that help us to be eco friendly.
Our packing peanuts are BIODEGRADABLE.
We want to protect you order and ensure your beautiful products arrive safely, but I really hate the idea of using all that styrofoam. So we pay more to get Biodegradable Peanuts.
They are made from Starch. Corn starch or Potato starch.
That means you can put them into the compost.
Peanuts made from starch means they will break down over time.
It also means that they melt away when you put them into water.
Check this out!
This is a fun experiment to do with the kids when you receive one of our parcels.
They will be amazed to watch the fluffy peanuts disappear to almost nothing.
It's one way that we reduce our impact on the world.
Helle owns Lucas loves cars. Working with toys since 2012, she has played with toys for a long time and is very picky about which toys make the list. Like a spoilt child, she will have a tantrum if the toy doesn't work and will play for hours if she finds it engaging and fun. Or until someone tells her it's time for lunch.
