Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

TSG reuses clean boxes and packing material - those not plastered with logos and unremovable labels. Why do companies spend resources making their materials single-use? Probably they're just using our doorsteps as advertising. We defeated plastic clamshells, maybe we can defeat nonconsensual porch-advertisement.

Not even Walmart will reuse a Walmart branded box.

Shipping boxes are getting worse - branded tape, bleached cardboard, color printing, glued boxes that rip-open, branded filler material, tamper-proof labels... Unboxing videos should shame companies for elaborate single-use garbage.

I'd choose re-usable plain-packaging if that was an option. Colorful, branded packaging alerts porch pirates. Probably, we'd all prefer low-key packages. Recycling cardboard still consumes water, collection centers, and trucking resources.

Anyhow, I made this portrait of a box-monster meeting Danbo.
