Have you ever meant to send someone a birthday card, but the hassle of going to the post office never seemed to fit into your schedule? How about changing your mind about an online purchase because it does not include free shipping, and there was a chance you may have to cover return shipping if the purchase isn’t what you wanted?

Having a pre-paid envelope on hand would certainly solve both of these scenarios. It only makes sense that you are more likely to mail something if it’s as easy as possible to do so.

mailbooksforgoodAfter Netflix popularized the use of pre-paid envelopes for unconventional purposes, they were adopted by many companies for many uses. One inspiring example is the Australian company Mailbooks for Good. They provide pre-paid envelopes that also double as dust jackets for books, so after you finish your latest novel you can put it in the envelope and drop it in the mail. Mailbooks for Good sends the books to the charity The Footpath Library, which provides books to homeless people and impoverished communities that do not have regular access to literature.

Just like you may not get around to sending that birthday card, you may not get around to dropping off your used books at your local Goodwill or donation center. Mailbooks for Good’s use of pre-paid envelopes makes it as simple to donate a book as it is to send us a Magic Envelope full of receipts!
