Little Boxes

I`ve noticed recently while shopping that more and more people are going back to the days of bringing their own shopping bags with them, and declining the plastic carrier bags. What a good sign this is of people doing their bit for the environment and global warming.

But the question I want to ask, is why, oh why do all the manufacturers still persist in delivering their goods to shops shrink wrapped in plastic/polythene and not in cardboard boxes in the way they used to. Surely they too should be thinking of reducing the amout of plastic and polythene they use which all has to be disposed of by the retailers.

Let`s start a "Bring back the cardboard box" campaign!!

I'm in. When do we start? ;)

good idea! I guess it's partly that things are stored outside rather than inside though.
