How can retailers do more to reduce the amount of cardboard boxes and packaging that comes with online sales growth?

Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments:
First, those among us who order online must be the ones that take charge of this. It cannot be the responsibility of the shipper only, as we, our children and their children will pay the consequences if we do not. We as consumers must be better at separating and breaking down boxes. People that do not are just being plain lazy. It takes seconds to do this.

Last time I went to Costco, the bottle return machines were being fed non-stop by those that collect and return bottles. Perhaps they need to be the ones that are subsidized by the online industry to take this on as well.

Does online shopping have a cardboard box problem?
