I think this matter still needs further attention.
That is my thought, as well. I've now received two orders in the white bubble-wrap bag. The first included two shave creams and a bottle of lube, as well as a number of other things, all of which were rattling around in this large, loose bag. The nice, reusable plastic packaging on my blindfold and cuffs was crushed a bit, but fortunately they weren't gifts. The second order, which I just received yesterday, did include three lingerie-type items, but also an assignment vibrator which should be considered fragile. In addition, the lovely box on the bamboo boxers was crushed flat, and the vibe box was partly crushed as well.
Packaging isn't always important, but it IS part of what we're buying, along with the products inside those packages. When something comes in a reusable package, or is intended as a gift, the packaging is even more important. These big plastic bubble envelopes should be reserved for lingerie-only orders (and maybe not even those, given the ease with which they could be torn and their contents damaged).
About the usual box--those have been too big for nearly every order I've ever placed, and the loose paper packing material hasn't been great protection against the abuse of the postal system, either. I wouldn't want to see foam packing peanuts, but I hope EF will consider using a smaller box when appropriate, and possibly a more protective biodegradable packing material!
