I don't know anyone personally who needs packing material so when I have enough bubble wrap or packing peanuts I post them to my local Freecycle site.

It's great to see folks recycling instead of filling the landfill! I'm also proud of you for resisting the urge to pop all those little bubbles, lol!

Kudos to you for thinking of your friend and for recycling the bubble wrap also. Another thing that I saw recently to pack with is empty soda bottles. I'm sure it won't work for everything, but if it worked for some items it might be worth it to consider this. I received a little business card size note with something I had shipped to me that used wadded up paper and magazine pages for packaging. They explained that they were holding down their costs as well as mine by using what was at hand instead of buying more stuff that would have to be recycled. I appreciated that note and thought they were to be commended for their consideration of the environment and my pocketbook.
Good luck with your scavenging!
