As far as I'm concerned, to reduce the materials in our life, companies should take action to figure out excessive packaging, however there is a dilemma that simple packaging could constrain their product competitiveness. so a company having willingness to package its products with simple way depends on consumers' attitude. if all consumers not care the box but the quality in it, excessive packaging will be not needed at all. In brief, consumers with environmental thinking will be the key to reduce wastes.

买椟还珠:楚人有卖某珠于郑者。为木兰之柜,熏以桂椒,缀以珠玉,饰以玫瑰,缉以翡翠。

  郑人买其椟而还其珠。此可谓善买椟矣,未可谓善鬻珠也。

买椟还珠:[pin yin]mǎi dú huán zhū (The oldest story of excessive packaging)
Getting the casket and returning the pearl
  A man from the state of Chu wanted to sell a precious pearl in the state of Zheng. He made a casket for the pearl out of the wood from a magnolia tree, which he fumigated with spices. He studded the casket with pearls and jade, ornamented it with red gems and decorated it with kingfisher feathers. A man of the state of Zheng bought the casket and gave him back the pearl.
  Too luxuriant decoration usually supersedes what really counts. This man from Chu certainly knew how to sell a casket but he was no good at selling his pearl. And the man of Zheng didn't know which is really valuable.
  Hanfeizi published around BC 280-233 in China
Meanings:keep the glittering casket and give back the pearls to the seller -- show lack of judgment; choose the wrong thing; buy the casket without the jewels
