Lopees reduces the need to use paper products, so we are effectively saving our diminishing forests. Your school or business will benefit from the savings in buying paper envelopes for internal and external mail use and in waste paper disposal costs. In a school environment Lopees will pay for itself within the first year as on average child will use approx. 100 envelopes per year. The cost of the envelopes exceeds the cost of the Lopees reusable envelope which can be used by the child year after year.

Our reusable envelope is made from organic cotton grown in India, free from pesticides and chemicals, which further helps the environment. Our supplier in India makes our product to our design and only for our company. Our manufacture has retrained men and women from 20 – 40 year olds who have suffered hardship.
