Green on the Outside But Not on the Inside

The cardboard box to the left, which is 14 inches long, 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep, arrived January 3 at the offices of California’s Capitol.  The green stamp on the lid proudly notes that “this carton made with recycled material for a better environment.”


Inside the 14 by 10 by 5 inch box were four 6 inch by 6 inch recyclable semi-inflated clear plastic AIRSPEED packing pillows, an 8.5 by 11 inch paper invoice and one  4 inch by 4 inch by 1.5 inch trapezoidal box containing one Hewlett Packard 61XL Tri-Color inkjet cartridge.
