Over-packaging

by Michele

As I said earlier, protecting the environment is a big concern of mine.  A few days ago we got a package in the mail.  I really wanted some Knex’s for Luke to play with (honestly I kind of wanted them for myself because they are really fun to play with).  Well, we got them in the mail.  They came in this very big box and I mean really big box.  We opened up the box to find another medium box.  We then opened up that box to find a small little package which contained my present, I mean Luke’s present.

Just think of how many more Knex’s could have fit in that box.  Or how cheaper it would have been to ship it had it been in a decent sized box.  We had a few other presents come in the mail this year for Christmas with the same problem but this one just seemed to be a bit extreme.  At least the boxes will get recycled.
