    Hi All,

    My name's Will, I'm new here. I was wondering what peoples views were on packaging clothing items in brown paper. I want to be environmentally friendly, which I understand may be a little naive, but worth considering surely? Is it possible to securely package clothing in brown paper without using plastic whilst still ensuring the items arrive entact?

    I would obviously try myself, but I want to know which way is best before buying all the materials.

    Any feedback would be gratefully received.

    Good of you to think about the environment like this.
    But think that if you are using tape to secure the packaging, the end customer
    may think its not worth the hassle of separating from the paper, and
    put it all in the land fill bin rather than the paper bin

    A fantastic idea, and as @beacon hill said 'good of you to think about the environment like this'.

    The issue though of course, is if you're using normal standard tape then the customers may not bother to recycle, as Beacon mentioned also.

    You could however use Eco-friendly tape, with the eco-friendly brown paper, but an issue is the paper may perhaps tear? Could you use recycled / eco-friendly flat boxes to send them in instead? That way it'd be more stable and easier for the customer to dispose of?
