International Envelope to use recycled HDPE.

Beginning last month, the entire line of "Tyvek" envelopes manufactured by international Envelope, Exton, PA, now contains 25% post-consumer recycled material. The recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) used in the manufacture of the envelopes, which is manufactured by Du Pont using a slightly modified Tyvek process, comes from such consumer items as plastic milk jugs and water containers.

In addition to showing the company's commitment to the environment with the new products, the new envelopes are evidence of the company's commitment to quality. Neither the quality or price of the material suffer and the envelopes continue to be lightweight, strong and water-resistant, with characteristics unchanged from the original 100% virgin Tyvek.
