Which? has started a gallery of photos we've been sent by concerned Which? members of products or parcels they think have been over packaged. You can see all of them in our guide to excess packaging.

You can also join in by sending your own photos of packaging to helpwanted@which.co.uk, putting 'excess packaging' in the heading.

You can also let us know your views on packaging by joining in the Which? conversation discussion about whether excess packaging is out of control.
