In honour of St Patrick’s Day, we at RAND Logistics have decided to make this blogging week ‘Green Week’. Recycling is incredibly important particularly when it comes to posting parcels internationally as individual packaging can be quite expensive.
By recycling parcels and cardboard boxes that you receive through the post and through day to day living, you can cut the costs of packaging greatly, and plus you’ll also be doing your bit to help the environment!
You know those hefty cardboard boxes you get when buying a new set of headphones or a big plush toy? You can recycle them by using them as delivery boxes! If you don’t want to disappoint your recipient you can always turn the packaging inside out so that the blank sides are on the outside, and then stick a stamp onto the box.
You can also use old instruction manuals as packaging by shredding them, as this ensures that any packages or parcels delivered are sufficiently protected when going through the post.
Sweden is the fourth greenest country in the world, with plans made by the government to eventually switch most houses and businesses to renewable energy sources. You can send a friend or relative a parcel to Sweden through RAND Logistics, safe in the knowledge that we will ensure it reaches its recipient in first class condition.
