You ever order something like a single pen and it comes in what appears to be a ridiculously sized box? Turns out, there’s a reason for that!

Amazon claims this is ultimately better for ensuring products arrive without damage.
So, yeah-it seems wasteful to use large packaging for small things…but I guess there is a reason?
