I think you can get the soft shipping envelopes like you described (although im not sure on colors) at your post office or walmart in the isle w/envelopes.

I buy my polymailers (the white outer/grey inner envelope) in bulk online. If you have an unused trash bag, you can use that, wrapped around the diaper several times and taped well, and then just tape a piece of paper with the address on top of it. I've also shipped in manila envelopes (with the diaper in a plastic bag inside, in case the package gets wet), brown paper bags (again, with the diaper inside in a plastic bag), all sorts of stuff. I'm big on recycling packaging materials.

The next time you get a diaper in the mail in a polymailer, hang onto it, and then when you need to ship one out, just turn the polymailer inside out and use it with the grey part on the outside.

I dug two polymailers out of the trash They were clean though, I had just thrown them out that day!

Thanks for the responses!

I ended up getting crafty also and using the gift bags from my baby shower. Now I feel like I've done my part! I cut them up and wrapped the diaper or whatever else I was sending. The lady at the post office said that it was really cute I also had a box from instant oatmeal so I flipped it inside out and re-taped and used that. AND a box from an air purifier. I love being good to "mother"! (Mother EARTH, of course!)
