Wasteful packaging from Swisspost!

I thought I'd save myself a trip to the post office. I ordered some stamps online as well as a replacement vignette for my bicycle.

The stamps turned up, much as I'd expected, in a cardboard-lined envelope. But no vignette inside...

Instead, it arrived separately, in the most wasteful, un-Swiss packaging I've ever seen:

Re: Wasteful packaging from Swisspost!

It's not too much packaging unless its the size of a postage stamp and packaged on a pallet
