We’re all about reusing boxes here at APS. If you’ve ordered from us in the past, chances are that you might have gotten a recycled box from us — this holds especially true on larger orders because we can reuse the boxes from our vendors.
However, there is a point at which “keeping it green” goes wrong. For instance, if a factory has to rachet up production to respond the nationwide tape shortage you create by shoring a box up, it’s probably time to let that box die.
When I got this photo from Arianne, APS’s Receiving Manager, the only rational explaination that I could come up with was that the box was air dropped without a parachute from 30,000ft and it contained a grizzly bear that shoots bees from its mouth.
