Wow...This Excessive Electronics Packaging Takes the Trophy!


Photos via Sustainable Is Good

I think half the people on my block heard me burst out laughing when I saw this image. You'll never guess what is inside this massive box. 10 new laptops? 5 flat panel monitors? Nope! Keep guessing...A power cord.

Yes! A single power cord!


Sustainable Is Good tells us, "An Australia-based user, on the popular site Notebookreview.com claims that HP delivered a power cord, complete with a wooden pallet. The user provided photos they took of the excessive packaging."

Seriously? Even the wooden pallet came along. Yeesh. All we can really say to this is, What the hell, HP?? You're on a roll with waste!
