Sustainable PF sometimes grumbles about the number of envelopes I have stored in closets and boxes in our house. I am talking about the large manila envelopes, some padded some not, all used to ship large items. I keep them and reuse them several times before they wear down. This way I don’t have to buy new ones and it’s a great reuse of a product! Simply tape a piece of paper on the cover with the new address and you’re all set!

This is a good tip. I never thought of doing this.
Great idea, but how do you handle the opening of the envelopes. Most of the ones that I get have sticky stuff on it that you have to tear the envelope to get it open
Good thinking here. When I saw the title of frequent flier, I thought about airline miles, so good hook as well with your title.
I have never thought about reusing them over and over again, but it is not much effort to re-tape them closed.
good sustainable tip. in our office for inter office communication, we use one type of envelop which will allow a number of address fields. each time we use them we strike the last address off and write a new one.
