Those super-durable, waterproof envelopes that come to you via UPS or FedEx are often made from Tyvek. While it feels like a plastic paper, it’s actually 100 percent polyester that’s spun together to make the heavy-duty material. Since Tyvek is hard to recycle, one thing you can do is save large envelopes for when you travel. Place ironed shirts in individual Tyvek envelopes (this will keep them from wrinkling), or put wet bathing suits in one when returning from your fun in the sun.
