I bought a lamp from the furniture store EQ3. The lamp was mostly packaged in cardboard, but check this out:
The single piece of paper with instructions was fully WRAPPED IN PLASTIC! Really?
As I notice these things I write the companies. I wrote to Canadian Tire about their fliers being wrapped in a plastic bag. Canadian Tire responded with a thank you and that it would be passed on to the authorities. A pat answer but at least making an acknowledgement. Unlike Rexall. I had also written to Rexall about the same issue but they just passed the buck stating it was the flyer distribution company that was responsible. Well, I think a responsible company would ensure that whatever company they are farming work out to is also environmentally responsible. I will be responding to them to let them know how I feel about their answer.
