"Waste of Packaging" Finalist: Bliss Lotion
It is always great to get a big box in the mail, however you usually expect to find a big item inside. That is exactly why Dave Chiu felt compelled to send us this entry, a small bottle of Bliss lotion in a great big Bliss shipping box. Of course, when you ship small items in large packages, you have to make sure they do not "shift", so this particular box (excessive in of itself) was further filled with other packing materials including the ubiquitous bubble wrap. For Dave, the fixes in this case are pretty easy, "What to fix: A start would be to ship small items in small boxes so you're not transporting a huge amount of air back and forth across the country. Second, start using refillable/reusable bottles." Photo after the jump.
