Polythene Envelopes have an important role to play. They allow a greater weight of insert to be sent in a water resistant and secure product. Other products, such as paper based products to meet similar criteria use up more resources in the production chain. Also, being heavier than plastic, paper products require additional distribution costs. This uses other non-sustainable resources such as oil products and adds to air pollution. In addition, some paper mail products are coated to give increased protection and strength; these products cannot be recycled because of this coating.

Plastic envelopes are a part of our everyday life dispose of them responsibly.
