One thought on “Amazon Changes How Products Are Packaged”

  1. Amazon has a long way to go in their packaging to make it environmentally good for the planet. Does a boxed product that came to Amazon in its own shipping box (so 2 boxes) really need to be put in yet another book (three now) just so Amazon can show off their smiley arrow and had potential gifts hidden? Or why when they do this three-box nonsense, to keep the first two boxes (always a tight fit) from shuffling around put it in a box that is at least 1/3 larger than needed with a wad of kraft paper (maybe 2 feet long) that wouldn’t do anything to prevent the package inside from rattling around? And then there is the decision, envelope or box? Most of the things I get other than clothing items, that come in envelopes should have been in a box. Even if mine didn’t get damaged I suspect others getting the same thing did. And then on the same day that I got an envelope with a dented item, I get a box with something that even if an elephant stepped on it, it wouldn’t break although it might get dirty, so why wasn’t it in a cheaper envelope? It is crazy and I see it has been getting worse and considering the number of things I get from Amazon, I would notice is packaging had gotten better.
