Recycling Part 2

Last month I published an article about my adventures in recycling titled "I Talk About Recycling But...". Since then I have learned or remembered a few new things.

I had decided to print both addresses on paper and tape the paper to the front of each envelope. That way it would be easy to remove the addresses and re-use the label. I don't know, but it just looked tacky to me.

I remembered at one of my jobs we sent inter-office mail to many places all over the state of Washington. The way we re-used these envelopes was to apply clear packing tape to the envelope where the label would go. 

That made it real easy to remove the label and re-use the envelope.

I also save packing materials (peanuts, bubblewrap, etc) from my packages to re-use when I pack an order.

There are so many little things we can do to recycle and re-use items for our business. Not only does it help environmentally, but it saves money too.


What are your little tips and/or tricks?

I would like to thank fellow ArtFire Texas Team Members
TheGemmedGiraffe and recycledyoyos for the use of their photos.  You can click on the picture to be taken to the item listing or their shop name to be taken to the shop.

I try to use pictures of items belonging to those who have previously commented on my posts or my blog followers. I do choose from the comments first.
