I reuse the long green Velcro straps that are often wrapped around celery when I buy it. I save them to use as ties. I have wrapped Christmas tree light bulbs, extension cords, stacks of Christmas cards, you name it! The Velcro straps makes things secure and I feel better by getting use from another piece of packing that normally would have been trashed.
