HP solution for Green. They are no shipping computers in a bag, a carry bag you can use to carry your computer around. Very good. Lots of press.
Walmart carries the HP computer in the bag, there is no box.
Very smart move! Way to go HP.
HP laptop-in-a-bag wins Walmart 'green' challenge
HP says it has found a way to reduce notebook packaging materials by 97 percent, and cut transportation costs by 31 percent. The computer giant has won Walmart's "green" Home Entertainment Design Challenge, by packaging a Pavillion dv6929 in a messenger bag capable of doubling as a shipping container. As a result, less styrofoam and cardboard are consumed, and a bulk shipment can occupy less space in ships and trucks, in theory resulting in less fuel expenses.
*By replacing the standard packaging with a reusable messenger bag, HP has reduced 97% of the amount of packaging waste the customer will need to discard. HP ships three notebooks in an over box to retail stores. Factoring in the master carton, HP has reduced 65% of the packaging waste©
