eBay to pilot reusable cardboard packaging - penguins rejoice
When it comes to our annual Worst Company Of The Year award, a lot of you have got a lot to say about eBay. To be fair, if they were to read all of your comments, they would probably close the whole thing down for a bit and rebrand themselves as eVilBay! Ha ha ha ha ha ha...
But for once, eBay are trying to do some good and make the world a better place, with a new range of re-usable shipping boxes, hopefully helping to cut down on the amount of packaging waste that fill the world and kill penguins as a direct result of their endeavours.
In a groovy twist, there are spaces inside the boxes where you can leave messages for its recipients, ideally something a bit more uplifting than ‘Here’s your used bibs.’ Over time, users of the boxes will see where it has been in the past and will be spiritually moved by it all or something.
eBay are piloting the programme with 100,000 of the recycled boxes in three sizes and if it’s a success, it could be curtains for the world’s cardboard mountain. eVilBay – trying to kill fewer penguins by 2020.
