Uline says the manufacturer of Flo-Pak peanuts are discontinuing them. Any ideas on what to use instead? The biodegradable peanuts always seem to shrink and not fill the space they should and the normal styrofoam ones are just nasty.

I hardly get anything with peanuts anymore. Have you tried regular paper and/or the pillows? There's also various types of shred... paper, wood, tissue. I usually just use packing paper.

I'm glad to see the back of those peanuts.

I prefer recycled paper.

They should have been discontinued a long time ago just because of the name. Who came up with that? "Flo-Pak" sounds like some sort of medicine for either prostate or incontinence issues.

LOL! No love for the Flo-Pak eh fellas?

It sounds like my choices are those air pockets or crumpled paper. The air pockets would be nice because they must weigh just about nothing but the crumpled paper wouldn't require any equipment.
