This has been a point of interest for me in recent years. Assuming that you're a loose collector, one of the downsides to getting sealed toys is the box or cardback/bubble that you'll inevitably throw away. I hate this because it feels wasteful. To help remedy this, I try to save the original packaging of select figures (3rd Party, G1 originals/reissues, Masterpieces, etc). However, I also buy new retail releases and that results in a lot of paper, plastic, and cardboard waste. It's gotten to the point that I recently acquired a heavy duty shredder to break down cardbacks and boxes. I like to use the shredded bits as packing material for shipments. I may be in the minority here, but I actually prefer the old plastic twist ties because I always found ways to reuse them (more so than their current paper counterparts). So, what do you reuse? What do you throw away? And does this excess waste bother you or do you just not think about it?
