Specifically, it is causing retailers to reconsider the use of plastic clamshell packaging. This packaging material is petroleum based and has seen the same run up in pricing as gasoline and other petro chemical products.
Major players like Target, Home Depot and Wal Mart are now offering products that use less expensive paper-based materials that are easier to open, less expensive to ship and are more eco friendly.
In addition to eliminating as much plastic as possible, retailers are also making packages smaller, which lowers shipping costs.
Perhaps most important, they are also more customer friendly. You won’t need a razor blade to open a package of razor blades.
