All the hard-to-recycle packaging that keeps new Dell computers snug in their cartons but ends up in landfills is being replaced by environmentally-friendly bamboo material.
Not just good for the Earth, as with most eco-friendly upgrades, the step is easily taken for the computer giant because of its money-saving benefit for Dell’s bottom line.
Dell estimates that the decision to switch to sustainable bamboo will save about 70,000 trees this year alone. Because of this switch, Dell’s packaging is now easier to recycle as well as less expensive to produce.
Not only that, the new stronger packages are more compact, which means less fuel used for shipping.
It’s a win-win-win improvement.
