It seems to me we may have to accept one or another of the
"unacceptable." Anything which biodegrades can be eaten by something and
thus will attract that form of life.  I am aware of some microbes which
consume oils and therefore may not pose a threat to our collected
materials, but I doubt we would wish to pack our purchases in oil.  Most
if not all biodegradable substances can be digested by a rather large
spectrum of life forms.  As a result, if we wish to spare the
environment, we will likely have to pack our shipments in something that
could be eaten by something else.
