Do you know what to do with used bubble wrap, padded envelopes and other packaging material? Unless you’re trying to make a fun dress as modeled by this creepy mannequin, you’re in luck because local businessman Alan Goldwasser will reuse your packaging materials.
You usually can’t recycle this stuff so this is a welcome change to dumping it in the trash and knowing that it will just sit in the landfill for another 100 years.
For more information on Alan’s good work and his local partners, check out the full story on the CHS blog .
You can drop off bubble wrap and padded mailers at Retrofit Home (currently at 12th Ave between Union and Pike but moving to 11th Ave and Pike later this spring). Unfortunately no styrofoam peanuts will be accepted.
