He provides a picture in case you have trouble imagining what a box of dead leaves looks like. According to his website:
Except for the part about the leaves coming from “real New York trees” as if that were something to get excited about, it doesn’t sound that bad. After all, using dead leaves for packaging beats Styrofoam, which wreaks havoc on the environment. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with adding a little rustic flair to holiday shipments, right?
