Apple shipping iPhone USB power adapter in huge box

iphone USB adapter large box has had a a mind for all things “green” as stated in their past two keynotes.  A few weeks back, Apple recalled the power adapters because the prongs were breaking off into the wall socket, which could cause an obvious jolt of unpleasant experiences.  Apple offered two ways to replace the USB adapter, by mail or by going to their stores. The people who chose to have it sent by mail have been surpised to find that the new, greener Apple has shipped the small adapter in a box that about 100 times its size.  I am sure Apple will take notice and do something about it, but it seems all the eggs are not in the basket when it comes to their “green initiative.”  This just proves that going “green” takes time, and within a large company such as Apple it will continue to take months—or years—for them to achieve their goals.  If you have an iPhone and live close to an Apple store, you can do your part by exchanging it yourself.  If you are out of range of an Apple store and have done the exchange, let us know if you have had the same “large box” experience.
