What the internet says about mailing bags

A Note About Packaging - I am working towards being as environmentally friendly as potential. Cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, polystyrene pellets and air packs that arrive with supplies I've ordered are checked for cleanliness, saved and reused when packing outgoing parcels. In addition we acquire a lot of charity bags through the door and, rather than send the unused ones to landfill, if I need to keep safe an item against damp etc, I'll cut a plain part from one of them to wrap it in. I also reuse the cellophane sleeves from greetings cards to package craft supplies and material that I have for sale. I do sometimes use polythene suppliers mailers, nevertheless am in the process of sourcing an eco-friendly substitute.
