Ways to Reduce
Choose a Greener Alternative
If you buy bubble wrap to use for personal or business use, consider a greener alternative like EcoEnclose’s Corrugated Bubble.
Use Newspaper Instead
Newspaper also works well to wrap items for shipping or storage, and newspaper balls can fill up empty space in packages. It can always be recycled after it has been used, too.
Ways to Reuse
Use It Again
Keep any bubble wrap you receive and save it for when you next need to wrap something fragile. One piece of bubble wrap can be used many times before it loses its usefulness.
Take It to a Mail Store
Some mailing stores will accept bubble wrap and other packing materials for drop-off. However, it depends on policies and current supply, so call ahead to ask.
Line Your Crisper Drawer
Use bubble wrap as a liner for your crisper drawer to prevent your fruits and vegetables from getting bruised.
