I received a mysterious package from Crate & Barrel today around 7pm. It was mysterious because I hadn't ordered anything and it was a relatively large box, as you can see in the photos. I proceeded to open the box and found a tremendous amount of packaging that I had to navigate through to get to the two spoons shown here.
You can watch the youtube video below to get a sense of the amount of packaging that was used to deliver these spoons. I must admit that the packaging wasn't simply piled on top of the spoons as the video shows, but was nicely bundled the first time I opened the box and looked for the spoons. The video was made as an afterthought because I felt I had to share with the world how irresponsible Crate & Barrel was being by using such an absurd amount of packing.
Now, I'm not the type of person that just criticizes. Here are some suggestions on what Crate & Barrel could do to clean up their wasteful act.
