    What I liked about this post was that it brought up the idea that companies find ways to reduce their carbon emissions when they deliver products. However- I'm not sure companies that use cars or planes necessarily do that. What about local delivery methods like Good Eggs, which use bicycles? http://www.good.is/posts/good-eggs-farm-to-fridge

    I have been testing out Amazon's Subscribe and Save program - ordering products such as laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwashing detergent, and non-perishable items - to save me trips to the store, gas, and time. But my concern is all the packaging.

    I try to reuse boxes - using them in my worm composter, for reshipping, or donating on freecycle as moving boxes. But I wish such programs had reuseable shipping containers that we could send back! I hate all the waste of the packaging.

      Really great point you bring up. I think there are definitely innovative things being done with packaging. For example- Wal Mart is not accepting packages made with a certain amount of plastic. Also- people are creating biodegradable forms of packaging. I agree- reuse would be great- kinda like what Netflix does.
