What a waste

What a waste… this box arrived today:


Stuffed with lots of brown paper.

And the contents was that single item laid out in front: a 15 ml resin flux pen!

Flammable, sure. But does it really have to be delivered that way? As a separate shipment and delivery? And by UPS, those huge brown trucks – always the largest delivery vehicles coming here.

Does that make me a major carbon emitter, energy waster, and polluter? I guess in a way it does :(
