      Of course, I would only consider altering a very heavily used USPO Tyvek mailer that is at the end of it’s lifespan. Doesn’t the USPO have a don’t ask, don’t tell policy?

    Thanks for the link.

    I figure most of these used envelopes just end up in landfills anyway. Save the world, one stuff sack at a time!
