Enveloping the green (Day 200)…

First, I just need to get a little “Woohoo!” out because it feels great to type the digits 2-0-0 in that subject line. To be honest, I’ve been hitting a bit of a wall these days with the green thing — sick of talking about it, sick of thinking about it, sick of doing it (but, of course, never sick of writing about it!). Anyway, no one likes a complainer, so on with the show:

On this lazy Sunday — not to mention I’m sitting at a Tim Horton’s in the Calgary airport and have been up since 4 a.m. — I’m going to steal a move from Green is Sexy, and I don’t feel so bad about it especially because they technically stole it from some guy named Eric Miller.

What I’ll be doing from now on, then, is saving all the reply envelopes I get in the mail from credit card companies or other junk distributors who’ve somehow managed to sneak by the Green Dimes system I have in place, and reusing them. I’ll just need to scratch out the address they’ve printed and rewrite my own, then off it goes!

    If you have any labels you can cover the old address with those and write the new address on them. Or you can tape scrap paper over the old address and write the new address on.

    if it’s any inspiration, i’m ‘this close’ to printing off your list and ticking off the things i’ve done/changed, and highlighting the ones i aim to do. keep up the creative thinking!

    well done. Dont forget that you are inspiring us. A little bit of green rubs off and permeates. You got through summer without AC and a cold drink! It must get easier!

    Be careful reusing those envelopes. They often have a barcode printed on them that the post office machines read. So even if you write a new address, your letter to Aunt Martha might end up at the electric company. If you want to use these envelopes, be sure to marker out that barcode.
