I just heard about this hot news and couldn't wait to share it with all of my devoted readers, especially with the holiday season soon approaching...
May I introduce Amazon.com's new Frustration-Free Packaging!
If you're a Mom like me, you'll love not having to deal with the hassles of opening up cumbersome plastic wrappings and packaging. This is a great alternative that is not only good for the environment, but will keep me from breaking my nails especially after a pricey manicure (don'tcha just hate that ladies?)
The Frustration-Free Package is totally recyclable minus all of the excess packaging materials (i.e. hard plastic clamshell casings, plastic bindings, and wire ties). Say goodbye to box cutters and prying open packages with your fingernails or even worse, knives. Like the kid from A Christmas Story, I kept worrying I'd carve my eye out.
Your gift, item or toy is exactly the same and just as protected as it was before - the only difference is the new and improved streamlined packaging. As a special added bonus, items available with Frustration-Free Packaging can be frequently shipped in their own boxes, without an additional shipping box!
There is only a limited selection of Toy and Consumer Electronic products from Amazon available for Frustration-Free Packaging as of yet, but here are hopes for a totally fuss-free packaging future. In fact, I strongly believe that ALL catalog shippers who sell products in hard plastic (electric razors, toys, phones, kitchen gadgets, electronics, etc.) should LEARN from Amazon and re-package their merchandise in frustration free boxes.
Just think of all the benefits it will bring to your company- Besides "Being Green" it will bring your customers complete ease when opening, decrease overall costs for your company (by only providing one shipping box instead of two) while also avoiding the pricey expense of intricate four color packaging.
Your business will save money, kids will get to their toys and goodies quicker, I'll have less to throw away...and no more wasted trips to the nail salon.
Now if Amazon could draw me a bubble bath, that would ease my frustrations even more.del.icio.us | digg it! | reddit! | Google!
