CD packaging on eBay

If, like me, you buy or sell any CDs on eBay, then here’s a guide to making sure your CDs arrive safely.

  • A hard outer layer : a reused CD specific envelope, or box/folded card
  • Write “mokol” on the outside : tell the recipient why you’ve reused old packaging (even if you have used new, “mokol” should be the prompt that is cool to reuse the packaging again, and again)
  • A soft inner cushion : reused bubble wrap, or tissue paper/soft filler
  • A little soft filler inside the jewel case : this is important to avoid the CD being depressed in transit, causing damage to the inner hub spokes/prongs and potentially damaging the tray (nothing more annoying than the CD “falling out”).

Happy CD listening, greener.
