GGrrr, Im not a tree huger by any stretch of the imagination but look at this waste !!

Ordered 6 sheets of perspex, same time, same place. Each sheet has come in its own box complete with brown paper packaging.

What an utter waste. One can only imagine what the daily waste and its associated cost in man hours, taking up delivery space, bin men, etc

Ive fired off a snottagram to Amazon. Not that it will do any good.
Quite a few times Ive had similar to this with a small item in a MASSIVE box. This is the most extreme so far though.

Rant over

Just think though - it has kept 6 packers in employment... smile
(I am in agreement with your sentiments though)

Well done you bothering to send a snottagram that is the stupidest by far, I have had a few of the giant boxes with a book in and exhaust bobbins that type of thing.

A lot of it is down to lazy packing staff who just can’t be bothered to use a suitable box.

I am guessing a disaffected Amazon employee on his last day? It does say something that they don't catch this in their system given how well developed it is.

Pretty rubbish outcome! hide


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Must agree a total waste.

But....the poor old Amazon delivery people who are put under pressure, have few employment rights etc etc are paid by parcel so at least they got a bit of a bonus having 6 boxes at the same address!

Still a dreadful waste of resources however. Shameful really.

But I bet we all still use Amazon...……...
