Amazon-Saving the Environment
I love the Russian "nesting dolls". An interesting concept of a very old school artisan craft, now long gone, (like old Swiss watch mechanism's or real German nutcrackers).
But Amazon takes the nesting "cake". The bottom box contained those air filled plastic shipping bladders, which were securing the smaller box. The smaller box contained yet more air bladder cushions which in turn held the very small camcorder battery on the inside.
A company named after a river that flows through some of the most ecologically important habitat on the planet should think a tad more about the waste in their shipping.
