Why the waste?

Why, Microsoft, why? I decided to buy MS Office for my iMac because I greatly prefer Word and Excel to Pages. But look at all the ridiculous packaging I had to tear through to get to the CD! All that plastic for a little CD. I would have been happy with a recycled paper sleeve covering the CD. It's just so wasteful and it makes me upset. But what can I, as the consumer, do? There has to be some way to make these companies see that all this packaging is superfluous and wasteful. And, it would probably be much cheaper for them to just package stuff in paper sleeves. So what's the deal?
