Bravo, Best Buy
I just received a shipment from BestBuy.com. Normally, I don’t shop at the online sites from bricks-and-mortar shops, with the exception of ordering something for in-store pickup. But BestBuy.com had something on sale that was not available at my local stores.
Anyway, this was the first time I received a product that was not ‘cocooned’ in a giant extra box. The product was well insulated with the manufacturer’s packaging, which included a durable cardboard carton. Best Buy simply wrapped the carton in a very durable plastic wrapper. In other words, there’s no large outer carton full of styrofoam peanuts. I’m sure this also keeps the shipping costs low.
The only thing that would have been better is if Best Buy used biodegradable plastic. The plastic wrapper is probably going to sit in a landfill for generations. But it is a big improvement.
