The Round Rock, Texas-based computer products company said it also plans to make a new wheat straw material that turns agricultural waste into boxes, the company said in a news release.
Dell said it will achieve waste-free packaging by ensuring that all Dell packaging is sourced from sustainable materials, and that all its packaging is recyclable or compostable at its end of life.
Dell said currently more than half of its packaging meets both of those criteria.
The company said it will begin making a new sustainable material, wheat straw, for many of its cardboard boxes for notebooks originating in China. Dell plans to start with 15 percent by weight content in the boxes.
