Amazon's new frustration-free packaging

I've long been a huge fan of, although I've also questioned the merits of online shopping in terms of its impact on the environment (not to mention the effect it has on local businesses and city and state sales tax revenues).

In any event, I'm glad to see that Amazon is rolling out a new "Frustration-free-packaging program," highlighted today in this Terrapass blog post. The products currently available are extremely limited, but I expect this will change quickly. As noted, it's a win-win-win (except, of course, for local businesses and public budgets).
