Shipping Green, protecting the environment using recycled materials. Supported by the eBay Green Team!
Saving money on international shipping Is a benefit to the customer and the seller. Green shipping works well keeping the cost low.
First I rolled the nutcracker in a few recycled plastic bags Then I rolled it with recycled bubble wrap.
Then I rolled it in newspaper only because I like to include newspaper in all my international shipping,I feel that it keeps it interesting!
Next I inserted it into a recycled large brown paper shopping bag and rolled that up tight and secure and covered it all with shipping tape.
Items like this I only offer express mail shipping but when a potential buyer contacts me and asks me to ship first class I will review their eBay feedback and if I feel they are trustworthy I will offer them international first class and adjust the price at checkout!
International green shipping rocks keeping the price down which allows the item to sell for more money it's a win-win!
Green shipping rocks!
When you use a recycled box such as this one is Irish oatmeal be sure to put a note greenshippingrocks.com on it to show your support for shipping green and your customer will understand !
Also never use boxes that are damaged or soiled. Use clean sturdy boxes!
Can you answer a Green riddle?
If you follow the eBay Green team page on Facebook you might notice there is a photo guessing game recently. The first couple were easy but the last image was hard to identify. I thought it was some kind of riddle or word play. Anyway I came across this cute riddle and thought I would share it just for fun.
A time when they’re green, a time when they’re brown,
But both of these times, cause me to frown.
But just in between, for a very short while,
They’re perfect and yellow, and cause me to smile!
What am I talking about here?

Hint: They have nothing to do with shipping supplies
Tip: Look for Organic, Whole Trade bananas. They are farmed on sustainable plantations.
Whole trade agreements protect the environment and the farm workers and provide us with healthier bananas to eat!
