Would You Like Some Cardboard With Your Tape?

We're all about reusing boxes here at APS. If you've ordered from us in the past, chances are that you might have gotten a recycled box from us -- this holds especially true on larger orders because we can reuse the boxes from our vendors.

However, there is a point at which "keeping it green" goes wrong. For instance, if a factory has to rachet up production to respond the nationwide tape shortage you create by shoring a box up (see image below), it's probably time to let that box die.

When I got this photo from Arianne, APS's Receiving Manager, the only rational explaination that I could come up with was that the box was air dropped without a parachute from 30,000ft and it contained a grizzly bear that shoots bees from its mouth.
