Bubble Envelopes

Hi folks!

I'm wondering, does everyone still recycle the bubble envelopes?

mavis, i've received so many recycled envelopes in so many ways. one woman cut a big envelope in quarters and used those. i am finding i prefer the recycled ones anyway, at least the older one, because the new ones are not as good. is anyone else discovering that? they seem thinner and i have gotten squished seeds despite them. i've been wrapping fleshier seeds in bubble wrap of cutting sections of older envies, putting the seeds in there, then sending them in a bubble envelope.

Around here we recycle "EVERYTHING" Well, almost everything.
When I first met Jack he was 1200 miles from home and saved all of his cans and bottles to take home for recycling. There was no recycling in that area and he refused to trash something that could be recycled.
Speaking of reusing bubblies..... does anyone else remember "the sisterhood of the traveling bubble wrap"? ( something like that anyway)
It was several years ago and I think it was GArdenWitch that set it up. That was fun to keep track of.
Have a great day

Beth that sounds like if was fun. Rose I'm glad everyone recycles the bubblies! We used to put tape on tape on tape in order to keep using them. I always enjoyed receiving a well worn envelope with seeds!

Have a great day!
