Send it with an eco-envelope

When Ann DeLaVergne realized that more than 80 billion reply envelopes are mailed in the US each year, she decided to do something about it. After making reusable envelopes from scratch with her sewing machine for two years, she met with the US Postal Service and patented the ecoEnvelope. The envelopes zip closed, eliminate the need for a separate reply envelope, and are manufactured with paper from managed forests and contain up to 100 percent post-consumer waste content.

For businesses or for use in your home office, ecoEnvelopes eliminate the need to print, store, handle, insert, track and include a separate reply envelope.
