As a startup, you have to think about what message you want to send out into the world. What does your business stand for and how do you distinguish yourself from competitors? Envelopes can help you make a statement.
You may think that an envelope is just an envelope, but the reality is quite different. With so many varieties available your choice of envelope is a perfect way for you to make a subtle yet very proclamation about your business, who you are, and what you stand for.
As the world begins to understand more and more the pressing need for us to be as ecologically conscious as possible, recycled envelopes are growing more popular because they offer you the opportunity to do something good for the world without needing to sacrifice any of the usability and reliability you expect. Let´s have a closer look at recycled envelopes and how they can serve your start-up.
What are recycled envelopes?
The answer is simple really; recycled envelopes are any envelope that has been made from paper which has already been recycled. When you think about it, there’s no reason for you not to use them. Despite being a much more ecologically conscious choice, they don’t actually offer any practical drawbacks.
They look the same as normal envelopes, they come in all the same sizes as normal envelopes, and they function in exactly the same way as normal envelopes. The only difference is that they haven’t used paper which has had to be specifically made for that purpose.
What do they say about you?
Using a recycled envelope tells your customers and clients that you care about the environment and that you’re willing to take an ecological stand even down to the smaller items of your business. It shows that you understand even things that seem small can quickly add up. In a time where the ecological concern is at an all-time high, not doing something to reduce your footprint can have a bigger negative impact on your brand than you might imagine.
Using a recycled envelope costs so little in terms of time, money, or effort, but it shows you’re willing to take the extra step. If you use a recycled envelope then you’re also likely to have taken other green energy and resource saving measures throughout your business. That kind of image is invaluable to customers, anything you can do to encourage them to further build trust and appreciation with your brand helps your growth.
Most companies only get one time to set their business image. So as a startup, you have to think really carefully about the image you want to build for your new company. Recycled envelopes can help you create a positive appearance.
