Empty space. So much for saving the environment, Apple.
Currently 80% of their packaging comes from sustainable forest land. They're striving for 100% shortly.
As long as it's sustainable, a little extra cardboard isn't going to hurt anything.
If you recycle then you would be helping.
Extra space in the box wastes fuel because another box might not have been able to fit in the truck, requiring more trucks to deliver the packages.
This is idiotic. Have you every seen a Fedex truck? It's the most loosely packed unorganized place in the world. My driver spends 5 minutes in there when he stops. Not his fault, he doesn't load it.
And it has plenty of AIR to spare.
Reminds me of Amazon's one size fits all mentality.
Only an idiot wouldn't instantly realize that if all the boxes in a truck were full of extra space, the truck could only carry half the packages. And don't forget the shipping containers and long-haul freight trucks that are also involved in the shipping.
In fact, space reduction in packaging is so important that the benefit of using less packaging in shipping containers is offset by the percentage of damaged products that it results in (because of less padding, etc...) because they can fit more products in one shipment.
This assumes that there are any trucks that are actually full, necessitating multiple trucks on certain routes, to begin with and this may not be the case.
Of course less packaging is preferable.
I wasn't aware we were dealing in hypotheticals. Yes, in special unicorn land that works. And we use less gas! And Aunt Edna doesn't send a Christmas gift in a 14" x 14" box with 8 lbs. of peanuts.
Thank you Lorax!
Keep in mind also that the package has to be of a certain size to fit UPS and Fedex and other shipping company requirements. Excessively small packages can fall off the conveyer belts and be lost. Keeping them to a safe size sometimes means shipping a lot of air in the package with the item.
Agreed. We too have to further do our part. U.S. Being environmentally responsible exponentially helps out!
