Green Game Packaging - Paper or Plastic?

Wal-Mart promotes green gaming has word that the retail giant has met with representatives of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to discuss making console gaming more environmentally friendly. Topics included giving system lower power standby modes, and the possibility of reversing the recent evolution to plastic game packaging by returning to paper and cardboard packaging, with Wal-Mart saying that would reduce the industry's carbon footprint by the equivalent of taking 4000 cars off the road.

even worse than i thought. pre-press and production has become overly automated. clients now expect large companies to have online services for uploading and approval of press ready files. soft proofing is now the norm. no need for production anymore. pre-press can be done by a single person instead of a dozen which was the norm a few years back.

We've been learning how to work/implement such systems. It's vastly different than it was a few years ago, so much so that they're thinking of changing the name again.

I've also been doing a lot of work relating to VDP, which is still relatively young.

Of course there are going to be companies that outsource it, but I'm more on the creative & IT side of things rather than the mechnical (both literally physical machines, and figuratively, preparing files for output) And judging by the quality of some of the software, I'm feeling somewhat good about that choice (even though I haven't a clue what I'm going to do when I graduate, heh)

It depends on what you mean by recycling.

What I mentioned in my original post: the benefits of recycling paper may not outweigh the environmental harm that paper recycling could do. Like what zirik mentioned in #36. Recycling especially scrap metal is very important, but I don't see any compelling reason that I should ever recycle paper, and seems to me like a feel-good thing that people do.
