“Essentially there is a very slick box with only an embossed logo on one corner – no other printing – so that it blends beautifully into anyone’s home decor. And the two trays inside are useful in any number of ways.In addition, they eliminated the plastic sheeting that you usually peel off a new device. Instead, they covered the notebook in a microfiber sleeve that can be used to clean and protect the computer indefinitely (something the consumer had better keep around since it doesn’t exactly biodegrade easily…). The point the designers kept in mind, Solomon said, was to make packaging that people would really want to keep around.” ~ from TreeHugger (check out the article here: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2009/05/greener-by-design-2009-hp-and-a-computer-box-meant-to-last-forever.php)

 

Excessive, unnecessary and unsustainable packaging is one of my biggest pet peeves, so it’s nice to see some progress in addressing this problem. 🙂
