Have you ever given a child a gift, just for him or her to play with the packaging more than the actual gift? There may be some undiscovered genius in this ideology that children so innocently take part in. The next time that you head out to the trash can with an electronics box, banana box or even cardboard inserts you may want to stop and give that cardboard a second look, then a third and maybe even a fourth look!

So we all know that a great way to bring in more customers is to frustrate your current ones, right? It seems like a crazy question, but apparently companies across the nation do not understand just how frustrated their customers are getting with over packaging. Customers are frustrated about excessive waste, wasted time trying to get to their product and even injuries that can be caused from difficult packaging.

As we move forward into the future, the focus is not so much on whether green processes are good and worth pursuing, but how we can increasingly improve on them and implement them.

Green initiatives have captured the public attention, raising awareness about our ecological impact and the consequences of it. While people have accepted it within varying degrees, the fact of the matter is that every bit helps. Whether it is a company that chooses to reduce their global footprint or a single person who happens to buy a reusable bag, every victory is important.

As such, making the small differences that add up over time is going to be one of the most important goals of the green movement going forward. There are always things we can do in order to improve on our reductions and our energy efficiency, the key is making them a reality.

Pragmatically speaking, this means combining form and function. If people see additional benefits to the green effort that make their lives better, they are going to be more likely to do their part.

The solar panels on electric car prototypes will give increased gas mileage and save people money while being good for the environment. Compact florescent bulbs save money on power costs. Green approved clothing sends a fashion message and is considered to be desirable by many because of that social impact.

These are all examples of green efforts which have had success because they make things better while decreasing our impact. Packsize strives to add to the green effort by cutting down greatly on boxes used, while saving you money on shipping. It’s all about the small things that add up to something greater.
