“Conserving energy and thus saving money, reducing consumption of unnecessary products and packaging and shifting to a clean-energy economy would likely hurt the bottom line of polluting industries, but would undoubtedly have positive effects for most of us.” – David Suzuki
History of Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day
The origin and creator of Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day are still unknown. If you are being forced to use knives or scissors to praise a toy or tool out of a solid plastic case, don’t keep your feelings undercover. Let the manufacturers know that their way of packing items just isn’t your bag. Unnecessary over-packaging not only wasting the time of customers it also increases the waste of resources. It also leaves us with the extra rubbish to dispose of. So it is an ideal day to avoid unnecessary packaging.
