About those packing peanuts...

We've received a few questions about the packing peanuts cushioning our granola in orders placed on our website and on Amazon. We're a pretty seriously eco-friendly bunch here at Michele's Granola: We recycle or compost 80% of our waste, our electricity is wind power, and we bake 100% non-GMO ingredients. 

Our earth-friendly practices extend to our shipping materials, so you can rest assured those little squishy doo-dads in our mail orders protecting your granola chunks are not styrofoam! Our packing peanuts are made from cornstarch and dissolve on contact with water, meaning no landfill waste.

We also include a note in every package letting customers know this important little fact, but we know how easily a note can be overlooked when there's fresh granola. You'll find more about our values and our eco-friendsly practices HERE.
