First up, we have the box in which a gift card for tween clothing retailer Justice was mailed.
While this is certainly not the worst example of wasteful boxing, what I found particularly amusing was that the box on the inside had a “Amazon Ready to Ship” sticker on it.
Amusing, right? Take a box that’s ready to ship and throw it in a much bigger box with a bunch of bubble wrap.
But wait, there’s more! The next week, Chris wrote back:
I finally got around to opening the inner box shown in that picture I sent you. Inside that box was another box that also had an “Amazon ready to ship” sticker on it. Sheesh!
Nicely done, Amazon! Remember, if you receive a ridiculously packaged Amazon item, let them know.
