DELL has announced they will be replacing the traditional Styrofoam packaging used to protect computers when shipping with a new material made from recycled milk and detergent bottles.

The company is hoping this change will reduce their carbon footprint significantly as well as saving them close to US $8 million. The move to 100 per cent recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) thermal-formed cushions will eliminate 9 million kilos of its packaging material over the next four years.

As there are no local manufacturers of HDPE in Australia – Australian waste won’t be sourced to create the product.
