Reusable Envelope Design

Individuals and businesses use billions of envelopes every year. Millions of these envelopes are used for internal business purposes, such as sending documents from one department to another. In most cases these envelopes are thrown away after just one use, even for non-confidential and low-security documents. Using disposable envelopes can represent a significant expense for many companies, and wastes precious natural resources. What is needed is a way to reuse envelopes for internal business documents.

The present invention is an envelope that can be re-used hundreds of times before disposal becomes necessary. The envelope should be made from a durable material, such as nylon or vinyl.
