Now that my orders are arriving, I am dealing with all the packaging. My town's waste management company published an instruction to help us 'do a better job recycling.' (Which prompted me to respond that I was not in the recycling business urging them to work with the shippers to DO A BETTER JOB PACKAGING.)
Obviously, Apple tops the Naughty list. It shouldn't require a two wheeler to get airpods from the mailbox. Amazon is right behind -- pretending their electronics products are Apple. Amazon's packages are sealed with tape that cannot easily be separated from the recyclable materials. Real PITA.
So far, Staples and Target top the Nice list.
I bought a 10.1" Echo Show from Staples. The Staples box was cardboard sealed with a rubbery plastic tape that stretched and pulled off the box. Target uses paper packing tape, so no need to separate at all.
I bought a 'Hyper Drive' from Best Buy which was packed in an envelope. 100% landfill, but there wasn't much of it. Unfortunately, the package inside was damaged.
How is your stuff coming?
