Packing Peanuts, ME News, Vol. 1, Issue 19
Good morning, and Happy Mid-Week! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. Michigan had great weather, lots of fun, and lots of snack foods. Luckily there was also swimming, hiking, and the Michigan State University Club to work all those yummy treats off….
Besides your ME Newsletter this week, I’ve attached a fun, easy and inexpensive summer science project. It’s a recipe for making your own biodegradable packing peanuts from corn. I found it on a kid’s classroom science site. They’re better for the environment than Styrofoam because they quickly dissolve in water, and create less landfill. They also have no static cling, which means they are safe to use for shipping electronics. Isn’t technology grand?
Have a safe and blessed week.
