Dell Using Bamboo to Ship Computers
Dell is shipping some of its computers in packaging that includes bamboo components, with the exterior packaging being made from 25 % post-consumer recycled materials. Bamboo is so preferable because it grows fast, at up to 24 inches a day, and is strong enough to protect equipment during transit.
The Austin, Texas-based company is “introducing it with mobile products, as it’s proven a strong, sustainable and cost-effective solution for packaging those.”
Last year Dell announced an extensive computer packaging plan that they hope will result in an estimated savings of more than $8 million, plus the elimination of approximately 20 million pounds of packaging material over the next four years!
