Eco•Ideas: Green Packaging

When you receive a package in the mail, what do you do with the packaging after you've opened it? Unfortunately, lots of packaging materials get thrown away.

Recycling and reusing can help save space in our landfills as well as save time and money going to buy new packaging materials. If still in usable condition, all these items work great a second and third time;
• boxes
• padded envelopes
• bubble wrap
• packing peanuts

These materials would also be appreciated and recycled by someone you know who is moving in the near future. Happy Recycling!
