Amazon to alter plastic packaging

November 4, 2008

To reduce battles with hard plastic that encase a new gadget or toy,
Amazon.com Inc.
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/amazon.com
-inc.-ORCRP000672.topic> said Monday that it is working with
manufacturers to make the products it sells easier to open and more
environmentally friendly.

Initially, the online retailer is altering the packaging in the U.S. on
19 top-selling products from a variety of manufacturers, including
toymaker Mattel Inc.
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/mattel-inc
.-ORCRP009532.topic> , softwaremaker Microsoft Corp.
<http://www.chicagotribune.com/topic/economy-business-finance/microsoft-
corp.-ORCRP009947.topic> and flash memory card-maker Transcend
Information Inc. Starting in 2009, Amazon's effort will include its
international sites as well.

Amazon said it is looking first at plastic "clamshell" cases and items
that are held in place with plastic-covered wire ties, which are often
used with toys.

Damned if ya do, and damned if ya don't!!!=20

By the way, I'm a proponent of BANNING the "clamshell" plastic packaging
found on everything nowadays. Not for "green" purposes, but for safety
reasons. The Consumer Safety Product Division reports that in 1994 there
were 6,400 emergency room visits due to this packaging. I've seen
estimates as high as over 170,000 injuries that didn't need an ER visit.
I have two scratches on my hand right now, after opening a new wireless
router! If it were a car, it woulda been Nader'ed!!

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
