The wife received a sample of glass tiles from Modwalls a few weeks ago and though I wasn’t overly impressed by the quality of glass tiles, I was amazed by the packaging.
You see, one of my biggest beefs w/ getting stuff shipped to us are the Styrofoam peanuts. They’re worse than bubble wrap. So forever I’ve tried to store them in the basement in hopes of one day reusing them. Well then you move and relocate and go into temporary housing and all this time you can’t keep storing these peanuts. Until one day you have to throw them out and the guilt is overwhelming.
Well guilt no more (especially if these catch on) and say hello to the ExpandOS packaging cushion system. These little cardboard cut-outs are REALLY neat. I actually spent the first few minutes upon opening the glass tile package to examine these rather than look at the tiles. All of the details are on the ExpandOS site (including a video) and there’s info on cost-savings, etc. etc. for businesses, but I have to say that as a customer, I’d gladly pay an extra 25-50 cents per package to not have to deal w/ the guilt of Styrofoam peanuts.
With the ExpandOS, I can save them for reuse or happily recycle them. Only disappointment is that i didn’t think of it first.
