Top n Tail?

I purchased 2 packets of these Pukka gingers as they were on special offer. 

I turned alternate bags upside down and to save space as the individually wrapped bags were fatter at the bottom and easily managed to get 32 bags in a packet that usually holds 20, that is an incredible 60% more.

Pukka tea bags? Two of the boxes below contain an extra 20%
more tea bags in exactly the same sized box, that's 4 more

24         :         20         :         24

But as you can see there is room for more more more.

Dr.Stuart's Extraordinarily Good Tease

Yesterday I purchased 2 packets of Dr.Stuart's Extraordinarily Good Tea,
mainly because they were on offer for £1 for a packet of 15 herbal tea bags (26g)

I opened the box and flipped the bags so they were laying flat rather than
standing upright, revealing that approximately
33% of the box is empty space.

Text on the box states 'Dr.Stuart's has 15% less packaging than before'

Why would a company boast about using less packaging when they could
have made the reduction 3 times greater?

Clipper tea - Green vs Sleep Easy

The packets are the same size, yet one contains 25 bags, the other only 20.  That is 25% less.

Is this really Green tea? Can they Sleep Easy?  Not in my book

Would you like manufactures to fill their packets up with more products?
