I can only imagine what the packaging must have looked before “Now”.
This bugs the shit out of me. Why do manufactures have to waste resources like this? This packaging for 3 lousy memory sticks is gel plastic and is the size of a 8x14 piece of paper. What the hell for? Marketing? You think people will actually stop and go – gee, look at that nice packaging?
Wasted resources, increased transportation costs for the extra weight and volume, more shit for the landfill – this is a complete waste. Why, why, why?
Unfortunately I had somebody pick this up for me at CostCo today, otherwise I wouldn’t have even bothered… I think I’ll take this back with a note, but I suppose that’s a feeble form of protest. CostCo is the worst offender for massive packaging like this. It’s not like people need a big banner to be reminded to pick up memory sticks or ink cartridges (which are the other item that has like 1/10th of packaging actually cover the product and the rest just waste).
Maybe we need a high profile law suit for somebody cutting themselves with this plastic packaging to get mfrs. to stop with this ludicrous non-recyclable, plastic packaging. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened yet. I know I’ve cut myself good a few times on that crap.
