Free Packing Materials! Make Your Own! by Jessica Hodges
Okay so I’d like to say I support this whole green movement, I really do but I extra support those things that really just make sense. So here’s a shout out to HSM Shredders who is currently advertising their shredder that shreds cardboard to create your own packing material!
What can you do with shredded cardboard? Oh yeah, use it to pack all that important stuff. To be honest, I don’t have a lot of extra cardboard just hanging out in my apartment. But I do have lots of newspapers, magazines, and cellphone bills piling up.
Shredded paper can be used as:
a) packaging for important work stuff
b) a cushion/ decoration to put inside the box for your friend’s present
c) a mess in your boss’ office for April Fools Day! (Tell him the shredder exploded or something.)
d) if you’re moving, stuff a bunch of shredded paper in your boxes to prevent damage!
Are there other ways to create your own packing material?
(e.g. Heard of shredding wrapping paper? That would be so decorative for wrapping presents!)
