But luckily, there's a silver liner amidst all those boxes.
Amazon.com has partnered Goodwill to at least give the Amazon box itself new life. Following 3 easy steps, you can repurpose your box as you donate items from home and send them along to the nearest Goodwill to you. Here are those 3 easy steps as quoted from Amazon's Sustainability page:
- "Open Your Box: Unpack your merchandise from your Amazon shipping box."
- "Pack Your Box: Fill the box with clothing, accessories and household goods you no longer need and print your free shipping label from GiveBackBox.com."
- "Send Your Box: Let UPS or the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) deliver your box of donations to Goodwill for you."
While it doesn't solve all the problems, it's a step in the right direction. Kudos to Amazon.com for raising its own bar in helping to keep items out of landfills.
