We now know what "Recyclable Packaging Material" means.
You know that great stuff they invented as packaging material that's made out of corn starch? It's good for the environment and it saves your fragile articles from damage as well. Of course we don't know exactly how well that stuff fares in the "environment" because we feed every last tasty morsel to the rats! They recycle it for us. Rats are great aren't they?
Be careful not to feed the Styrofoam stuff to them. I don't believe that stuff really digests very well. If you're not sure which is edible and which is not, get a piece wet. If it shrivels up like cotton candy when it gets wet, you've got yourself a tasty treat (just don't forget to share some with your rats)!
