I do. I try to recycle whatever I can within reason. I try to remember to take cloth bags with me when I shop. I actually feel guilty when I forget to get them out of the car before I go in the store. Senior moments really suck.
When I sell things on ebay I reuse lots of boxes, cardboard, bubble wrap, packing peanuts and such. I save all of my big plastic bags that I get at the thrift store and use them to stuff in shoe toes or sometimes to take stuff back to the thrift store. I don't use packing stuff that smells or is dirty. I have been known to wash bubble wrap before using it.
So when I purchase something on ebay I don't mind if it comes in a used box. But some things I do mind.
|A box with poop is towards the top of my list|
Now who would send a box off with an item they sold with poop in it?
Thank goodness the item I purchased was glass and not fabric or something I was going to wear. I immediately put this outside on the deck, because, really who wants a box with poop in their house. The cat handles that job nicely.
I thought long and hard about what kind of feedback to leave. I did get what I purchased. It did arrive rather quickly. It was as described. I was charged excess shipping. So I did leave positive feedback, but also a comment about the excess shipping. When I get over the grossed out factor I am going to message the seller and let her know about the poop issue. I can't wait to hear the excuse.
This was no new seller. Over 9,000 sales!!! How in the world did this happen? I mean, I reuse boxes. Heck I even shipped something double boxed one time with a popsicle box as the inside box. I save macaroni boxes, Dove soap boxes, and any box that I can use. I regularly visit our local ABC store and get their boxes. But I have never shipped poop before and don't plan on ever shipping poop.
Feel free to go wash your hands now.
