Recycle/reuse & Waste Reduction - a place to start

Hi Rhea, welcome to the Nature and Environment forum.

Well, I don't think one can necessarily assume that just because someone is a potter that he's automaticaly concerned with recycling. On the flip side he's likely suffered some serious losses in transit that cost him considerable income and pissed off his customers. So I'd recommend approaching it from that awareness also.

It might help to do a little research ahead of time. If you do business with him then you know where he's located. Try looking up recycling places in his area and maybe try to find places that provide the biodegradeable "popcorn" cornstarch packing peanuts or some of the shredded cardboard soft packing material and letting him know they are available. It could also be price sensitive, he may not be able to afford the environmentally friendly stuff.

Also, he could be recycling packing material he's received himself, so what you got is already recycled once.
