Green must not mean shoddy
Last Friday I popped into a high street stationers to pick up some printer paper. They only had two packs of recycled paper and both had split crumpling some of the paper inside. None of the non-recycled paper had suffered the same, being in waxier wrapping. I asked an assistant whether they had any other packs and she said no, but that the packing on these was completely inadequate. She offered me a discount, which I took.
But this really annoys me. Green must not mean being offered inferior goods or services – especially from a big brand such as Xerox. There is no point whatsoever in lightweighting packaging if it doesn’t protect the contents properly. A complete waste of time, effort and resources.
