I know there are a lot of business savings in terms of cost and time savings. The thing that you hinted at, though, is a world benefit: a reduction in use of unneccessary plastic. When i think of all the components being shipped to all the different OEMs, distributors, and CMs, etc. I can only begin to imagine the sheer volume of little plastic bags. Getting rid of them surely would have a huge environmental impact. Small things really do add up.

yes, you would get a limited faraday cage effect.  To do well with faraday cages though you would like to have a real conductive material.
