Dell Uses Compostable Bamboo Packing Materials

Streak, Dell's 5-inch tablet, is packaging in  cushions made from 
sustainable, compostable bamboo.

Dell is using new bamboo packaging materials that are compostable making them easier to dispose of in places other than a dumpster (read landfill).  The result is a more sustainable packaging solution.

" ... mechanically pulped bamboo ... will compost and biodegrade ... comparable to known compostable materials ..."

" ... building on its commitment to make ‘being green’ easy and cost-effective for customers. "

So why bamboo ?  Bamboo is a natural as it is fast growing, strong and " ... doesn't require replanting after harvest".
