Re: Journals without wrappers? Barbara Pope 29 Jan 2008 14:33 UTC

For the original poster at Oxford UP, if you want to keep from using
plastic due to environmental factors, but need or want to continue
wrapping issues because of customer preference,  you could package them
in paper envelopes instead of plastic.  For the few that do come in
paper to our library, we reuse the envelopes in interlibrary loan or
campus mail and later recycle them.  Just a thought.
