Everything people do has an impact on the environment. At CrunchTime, we are sensitive to that fact and strive to reduce both our customers’ and our own environmental impacts. We primarily use 100% recycled polystyrene peanuts for packaging, and encourage you to recycle these peanuts. For locations of peanut recycling centers see the recycling sections of, or call the Peanut Hotline at 800-828-2214. Many Mail Boxes Etc® and The UPS Store™ locations also accept clean foam peanuts for recycling.

If products are on backorder we will provide you with an estimated ship date for the backordered products, usually by e-mail. You are also able to check on an order’s status through the My Account section of our site.
