In answer to Bobbie Raymond’s quandary about what to do with all the fat rubber bands that accumulate from the mail, here is what I do. [What’s with all the rubber bands? Viewpoints, Sept. 29] I loop them on a doorknob until I get enough to place in a recycled envelope. Then I write on both sides, “Please reuse,” seal it, and throw it in the mailbox. I should ask my mailman if they really do reuse them.
