Are you being "green" this Christmas season? Opportunities abound to recycle your Christmas wrappings, packing material and other related material. I mean seriously, the stuff is everywhere. You may remember I harped on this last year, but using recycled material is a really smart way to ship your eBay items.
Check out these "before and after" pictures of two holiday baskets my wife won recently at a school fundraiser. She was pretty excited about winning the baskets. One was full of holiday themed stuff, while the other was jam packed with pet store items. (Suffice it to say, our dog is now set for the year) When Mrs. Dude came home from the fundraiser with the baskets, she couldn't wait to show off all the stuff she won. I took one look and commented, "That's awesome, just look at all that wrapping paper!" Probably not the reaction she was looking for! But after Mrs. Dude inventoried all her basket winnings, I made off with the clear plastic paper. The paper couldn't have come at a better time, I am wrapping and shipping a zillion holiday sales.
Here's the end result-check out the shirt in the above picture. It's all neatly wrapped in the recycled basket paper, ready to be shipped to the buyer. Looks pretty good right? When buyers receive their item neatly packaged like this, they will usually show their appreciation with high seller ratings. Amazing what a little recycled paper can do!
Do you have any example of recycled stuff you use? Send in a picture and/or story and we'll post it on the site! Happy Holidays!
