I just received another shipment of parts, mostly small items. Inside was an over abundance of plastic packaging.
Among the items were four of your standard handlebar wire retainers, each in its own tiny bag with all four in another plastic bag. This is ridiculous! The oceans are choked with plastic waste, but we persist in over packaging all this stuff. I understand that things like carb jets come pre-packaged in plastic from AMAL.
Can I propose that all you vendors please use small paper bags for packaging small parts? Seems to work just fine for my local Ace hardware.
While we're at it, you can keep your packing peanuts. Please use only old newspaper for padding.
Thank you

Orders I received from TMS in Nottingham England were wrapped in pages from a somewhat sexy tabloid newspaper. My headlight shell came wrapped in a page featuring some well endowed ladies. Made me laugh! I think the pun was intended.

Whats the fire rating for packing peanuts? Don't think I'd use it or Styrofoam for insulation ...could be hard to explain to your house and contents insurance company???
I always try to re use packing...I send stuff around a bit [you have british bikes], so its always handy to keep some around, ready for when I need it.
