Hewlett Packard, the environment and perhaps too much packaging?

Every major company is happy to promote itself as being green and Hewlett Packard is no exception.

Having worked in IT for a long time I’m used to wasteful packaging like a piece of A4 paper arriving in a box that could take two or three reams (IBM) or a piece of paper and out of date CD (HP Digital Sender License) arrive in a large box flown from somewhere in ASIA but it was the delivery of a management Ethernet port for a HP server that was really over the top.

And yes the box was strapped down using packing straps to the timber pallet which was flown from ASIA using an express courier.
