Yes! Beginning in 2008 Dell began a program to reduce packaging by 20 million pounds, hoping to save $8.1 million over four years. Such savings will help Dell avoid laying off employees.
Miminzing packaging will definitely reduce costs (for materials and also for shipping, as in some cases it would reduce the weight and lower shipping fees) but it also presents the potential for increased profit. As more consumers become educated on sustainable buying methods, they will look for products which use less packaging. By purchasing more of those products, the companies who produce them stand to increase their revenues.
