Excessive packaging leads to more material to be disposed of, more resources used for transportation (excessive packaging=higher weight=more gas), and more resources used in producing the packaging material (power, heat, etc...). -From a Packaging Engineer The answer above is very true. excessive packaging leads to higher usage of material meaning more resources consumed such as plants that create oxygen. I work for a packaging company and we try to work with customers who have a product to make sure that they are using only enough material to get the job done. This in turn saves them money and helps reduce the effects on our planet.
