This issue is more than ripe for some regional effort - packaging
reduction campaign with specific targets. Anyone interested in taking
this on as a "group" in 2005 to see what progress we can make?" Is
anyone else out there working on this from the public point of view?

is there anyone to complain to about excessive packaging besides the
company that set it?

Hi Julie,

I thought if anyone knew who to complain about excessive packaging, you

Get this. In yesterday's mail I received a nice thick package from
AT&T Universal Card (a card I already have) which says on the outside
something like - great news for you. I think, how nice, a token gift
or something. Well I open it and the thing making the package thick is
not any gift at all, but a 1" x 2" x 4" block of styrofoam! So now,
not only did I not get a gift, but I got something which I have to
drive to the recycling center to be able to recycle. That made me mad
to write them and tell them what idiots they are, but then I started
thinking how they probably sent out a tens of thousands of these
packages of trash which they needlessly inflated with more trash. I
seems it should be against the law to inflict trash upon people.

Well, I will recycle my piece by including it with the letter I write
them, but I bet most end up in the trash, since that is the easiest
thing to do.

Do you know of someone to whom these folks should be reported?
