[GreenYes] Tyvex envelopes
TyvekŪ Envelopes are made of an environmentally responsible material, with
25% of its composition coming from common recycled milk and water
containers. DuPont also manages a nationwide recycling program that collects
used TyvekŪ Envelopes which are then recycled into other useful materials
that provide sound alternatives to the use of wood.

Send the right message to the environment by recycling all of your used
TyvekŪ envelopes. DuPont has set the recycling infrastructure in place.
There are many ways to participate:

For Small Quantities (less than 25 envelopes/month)
Turn any TyvekŪ envelope inside out, so the unprinted white surface shows on
the outside. Stuff the inside-out TyvekŪ envelope with other used TyvekŪ
envelopes for recycling.

Address and mail the envelope to:
Terry Fife - TyvekŪ  Recycling Specialist
5401 Jefferson Davis Highway
Spot 197 - Room 231
Richmond, VA 23234

For Medium Quantities (more than 25 but less than 500 envelopes/month)
Call 1-800-44-TyvekŪ and ask about our pouch program for recycling TyvekŪ
envelopes. Each pouch holds approximately 200 used TyvekŪ envelopes. Collect
your envelopes in the pouch and then forward them to a regional recycler -
address label provided.

For Larger Quantities (more than 500 envelopes/month)
Contact Terry Fife, TyvekŪ Recycling Specialist, at 1-800-222-5676 or
1-800-44-TYVEKŪ to have a custom program set up for you that works with
local recyclers in your region.

A list of outside resources that can recycle TyvekŪ is available for
