Lainie Strempel from Mitcham Library in beautiful downtown Kingswood SA, reports that staff at her library love the packing material we send them in our cartons. The ‘stuff” which we make by shredding paper, cardboard, and various bits of packing would previously have been dumped, but now makes excellent packing for orders.

This packing is then used by Mitcham Library library staff for children to fill/stuff puppets at playtime in the library.

‘And the beat goes on
.!’ As was blogged previously, a simple thought process, followed by a simple action from us has produced flow-on impact and positive feedback from libraries throughout Australia.

If you have any thoughts or examples like Lainie’s, please let us know on Twitter @soundpack, or email
