Prairie Melody™ uses repurposed shipping boxes

How are you doing on your 2020 Environmental Goals? Send us an update and we will send your choice of a 1-pound package of birdseed or poultry blend.

In February, we set out a few goals that we could each achieve that would have a very real impact on our environment. How are you doing?

We also have begun using repurposed shipping boxes for our online store and our Amazon FBM customers. You may have noticed a label on the outside of the box that looks like this.

I know that cardboard is recyclable but that takes energy and the second R in the green triangle is “Reuse”. Not only does it save money, but it saves energy and it is one more way that we can live our belief that “Every backyard makes a difference.”

If you prefer us to use new packaging for you, please let us know in the comments or send us an email and we will make sure to accommodate your request.

At our house, we have pretty much eliminated single-use plastics including water bottles and store bags. We were struggling with coffee pods, but Mrs. Prairie Melody now buys compostable pods from SF Bay Coffee ( They have a great ethic and give back to their community of growers.

An update on COVID-19 and birding. As of today, all of us at Prairie Melody are healthy with no virus issues. We pray for the people who are affected by the virus and their families. Here are some guidelines from the State of Illinois. "Do" Number 5 is your permission to get outside and go on a birding walk! Stay safe everyone.
