Almost every package I send or receive starts with a box. Often it is a box that is much too large for the item. What does that equal? Waste.

3M is well known from tape to packing supplies, and they are doing it again. Honestly, their newest shipping product can save space and minimize waste!

They have recently released something called the Flex and Seal Shipping Roll. In short, it is shipping materials that fold and mold around the item you hope to ship. It comes as a roll so you only have to wrap the item, and it is self adhesive to save you tape and time wrapping.

I am a huge fan of things that will save time, money, and minimize waste. This new product seems to hit those major points.

This new product has my creative juices flowing. What else can we do to make sure shipping and packaging has less of an environmental impact?
