Hey Best Buy,
After buying a computer, printer, and ink cartridges recently, I was struck by how much packaging was involved: a bunch of boxes, plastic and foam inserts to protect the product during shipping. Afterwards, its not good for much except to throw away.
What if Best Buy organized a program where people could bring back the packaging of recently bought items, and then you could send it back to the respective companies to reuse for packaging of future products of the same kind?
We could reduce our waste going to landfills and reduce the amount of new packaging we have to create. You could give people a small $5 store credit or something. With your current recycling initiative, this small addition would be an easy step.
