In an effort to recycle, Kevin and I try to always reuse shipping boxes when we need to mail something, we even cut them open and invert them so they are inside out. Apparently we'd better be careful because reusing priority or express mail boxes is ILLEGAL! Yep, you read correctly, even turning them inside out so the box is unmarked is illegal.
This has made headlines and I came across the article this morning and knew I had to share. The post office wants to make more money by having you ship something priority or express (and the boxes are free mind you so it makes little sense to me) so they are making it a policy that you can't resuse these boxes? Something is not adding up to me either...
