Padded envelopes

Many padded envelopes can't be recycled as they are made from composite materials - usually paper, plastic and other filler materials like bubblewrap.

Instead of throwing them away, keep them so you can use them again in future.

Some padded envelopes are filled with paper cushioning rather than bubblewrap. These types can be recycled!
