Attach the tag to your valuable.

Given a choice, most people would directly contact the owner of a lost item rather than reporting to police/authorities or uploading details on a website. That is hassle free & makes them feel good.

Is this not more eco-friendly than paper tags?
Contact details kept private, till you lose the item
It's not wise to write you phone number or email id on your things. That could infringe your privacy & is also not aesthetic. But if lost things don't have any information about their owner, they don't get returned to their owners.
AmILost Tags are smart. They don't reveal your contact details till the item is lost. But once your item is lost, you can activate the AmILost Tags from anywhere quite easily to show your conatct details to the finder.
