weekly simple eco tip, 8.14

While many companies allow you to choose paperless billing, reducing your amount of mail, not all of them have made the step.

Paper bills pretty much always come with a return envelope for your payment. You can still choose to pay paper bills online, but then you have an extra envelope lying around. Don't throw those away, or even into the recycling bin! Save them in a space on your desk at home or work and use them when you need an envelope. It will also save you money on buying envelopes.

For years, I would use all my spare envelopes on rent payments, until I switched over to online payments. I pay most bills online these days, but I still save spare envelopes for that time I know I will end up needing one.
