Kitchen Devils Household Scissors

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Fiskars have just repackaged their excellent Kitchen Devils household (and kitchen) scissors (each priced £6.50). The old packaging measured 270×90mm (10.5×3.5in). The new packaging is 310×125mm (12×5in). The product inside remains the same.

What part of “We Want LESS PACKAGING” do these marketing guys not understand? The only company we deal with that I feel makes a conscious effort to reduce packaging is Draper Tools. Some of their stuff is really getting quite clever.
