Inflatable shipping bags

While I cannot attest to the safety of these inflatable envelopes
for shipping collection material, I have used them to mail CD's and
they have arrived safely.  The interesting thing about the envelopes
I am using is that the end-user can mail the used envelope (postage
paid) to a recycling company.  If you frequently need to send
bubble-pack envelopes, I think this is an excellent, relatively
environmentally-friendly option.

I found these Xpander Pak brand envelopes in one Ottawa post office.
They come in three sizes: (in inches) 9x12, 12x15, and 14x19.  They
are manufactured by Xpander Pak Inc., Protective Packaging Systems,
Glen Allen, VA  23060-4500, 800-720-1777.
