Amazon.com does some good..

I was checking something out on Amazon.com yesterday and right on the main page was news they were going to work on cutting down the packaging their items come in.

Check out this link to see the amazing amount of "crap" that toys are packed with that they hope to eliminate.

There is an example here.

Thank you..on many levels. Mostly you are saving me about 10hrs on Christmas Day opening toys!

I hate packaging. What the hell are they trying to protect these things from? Especially kids toys! I need a laser and fire cutter to open these packages. Sheesh!

Yeah, no kidding! All that packaging makes me crazy.

I am happy to see a big company like FP making an effort at package reduction, I hope more companies will follow the trend.

Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging?
I donno about that. When the kids were small, we ordered allot of stuff via Amazon, and had others do the same since we were far away... and why have to buy it, then take it home and ship it yourself? I opened one bax that was about 3-foot by 1.5 foot by 2, it had something like a crib busy aquarium thingy in it that was about 1/8 the size of the box....packed in about 500 of those airbag things. The huge arse box, took up more room in the UPS truck, I figure if Amazon shipped 10 boxes like that, it would mean extra trips for UPS...and more fuel burned. But that's just me.
