Green Tip: Re-Gift Your Packing Peanuts

Ever received a package in the mail and wondered what to do with all the extra stuff in the box (peanuts, bubble wrap, etc)?

Sure, some people reuse it. But what about those of us who don't send many packages through the mail. What should we do with all that stuff?

We got a little bit of an answer yesterday when we were looking into Jennifer's question regarding recycling shredded paper.Did you know that you can take your packing pellets (or peanuts) and bubble wrap back to packing/mailing stores like Mailboxes, Etc?

If you take them neatly packed in a box or plastic bag, they'll reuse the material in their day-to-day business.
