Here in Germany is a Mouser-like shop called Buerklin. Since the mid eighties they store everything in wooden shelves in cardbox boxes. They ship everything in paperbags (with the exception of electrostatic sensitive parts).
This was my first business contact to someone who showed something like ecologic responsibility.

Somehow, I seem to be left with what looks like about 2000 empty bags.  Some of the resistors were packed in 10 bags of 10 inside a bigger bag.  Some were in 4 bags of 25 in a bigger bag.  Quite a few were in a small bag of 100 placed inside a bigger bag with an identical label.
