An eco shout-out to HP
I don't usually post on Technology day, but I just had to give a treehugger high five to the Hewlitt Packard company. Yesterday, when I opened the box my new printer came in, it wasn't what I saw in there that made me happy, it was what I DIDN'T see. No styrofoam: my printer was braced with recycled (and recyclable) cardboard. And the printer was wrapped in a handy-dandy re-usable fabric tote bag - NOT in miles of plastic film. Not only that, the printer itself is largely made of recycled plastic! I immediately wrote to HP and thanked them. Way to go, HP. When it comes to planet friendly packaging, I hope other electronics companies follow your lead.
