Like many of you out there I am a regular user of eBay and Amazon and I am staggered by the amount of newly bought padded envelopes and postage packaging that accumulates over the months. Although some are made from recycled paper, I rarely see a reused envelope these days and surely it would make more sense to re-use recycled envelopes? Surely this would save us all money and the environment in the long run? I use this method all the time but I find that others are put off by my example as they think it might make seem cheap or thrifty. So I have created a label that will hopefully make up for it by both encouraging the reusing of envelopes and postal packaging and highlighting the environmentally friendly aspect of this method, hopefully compensating for the ‘second hand’ look that the package might have. Harking back to my Science Spotlight
series the label reads, “Professor David Bellamy says:
“Save money and the environment by reusing old envelopes postal packaging!
” and is fully endorsed by Professor David Bellamy OBE. "Britain's best known botanist" doesn’t really need an introduction with over 40 books, 80+ scientific papers on ecology and the environment along with dozens of television programmes to his name it has been a privilege working with him on this project.
Simply download the free label by clicking on the above image, print it off, add the recipient’s name and address on the right hand side and stick them to your envelopes and parcels. For maximum green effect print the labels with environmentally friendly Soy ink on 100% recycled or FSC sourced paper/stickers! Please note
