USPS Approved: Two-Way ecoEnvelope

Cut your envelopes in half?

Don’t go grabbing for the scissors.  The ingenious, two-way ecoEnvelope is the answer.

Ann DeLaVergne, founder of ecoEnvelopes, and always environmentally conscious, was looking for a way to re-use envelopes she received in the mail.  Finding the practice difficult to say the least, she developed her own two-way envelope (she used a sewing machine, folks!).

More than 80 billion reply envelopes are used annually in the United States alone.  The ecoEnvelope is essentially an outer envelope with a reply envelope built right in.  Not only are you reducing environmental impact, but you should also see cost savings by eliminating the need to print BRE or CRE.

According to the Center for Environmental Innovation, each million ecoEnvelopes mailed results in the following environmental benefits:

  • Wood saved: 43 tons
  • Wastewater Avoided: 123,989 gallons
  • Solid Waste Eliminated:  14,809 pounds
  • Hazardous Air Pollutants Avoided: 14 pounds
  • Total Energy Conserved:  249 million BTUs

These envelopes are USPS approved, produced with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) material and are 30% post-consumer waste for the stock items.  They play well with inserting, remittance and USPS postal processing equipment.

Two-way envelopes speak volumes in your commitment to “greening your mail” while sending a clear message to your customers that you care about the environment.  Why not give them a try on your next mailing?
