Daily Tip: Dec 7, 2007

Packing and shipping gifts can be an energy-intensive process. But if just a card won’t do, reuse old cardboard boxes, picking one that’s closest in size to what you’re sending, and use the least amount of packing materials possible. You can even find biodegradable packing peanuts that are made out of starch and disintegrate in water. If you do use Styrofoam ones, most packing and shipping stores will gladly accept your old peanuts and reuse them.
