Just got my Soylent today
I hope that in the future Soylent changes their packaging. I’m not talking about the pouch or the oil bottle but the boxes it ships in.
The packaging is easily 2-3 times bigger than is necessary. I can almost get all 4 weeks of the pouches into one weeks box.
One way that they could do it would to use the same boxes but put 14 days in a box rather than 7. I know this would create some logistical problems with 7 day orders but it would be a lot easier to deal with when it gets dropped off (maybe even cheaper to ship?).
The other way would be to move to smaller boxes of 7 days.
One of @rob’s stated benefits of Soylent is the lower impact on the environment (with regards to food production). Shipping in a box that’s 2-3 times larger than needed seems to run counter to that.
I know this won’t happen too soon because there are more important kinks to work out in their entire supply and production process, but I hope they will give some thought to this.
