A 2 Minute Tip To Reduce Your Plastic Use

As many of your know, a big part of my home life is finding simple ways to reduce my environmental impact.

I wrote about using less water last month.

Here is another tip I wanted to share with you all.

Like it or not, Amazon is a huge part of all of our lives. From pet food to skincare, I use Amazon at least once a week.

The worst part about Amazon has to be all the plastic that products/packaging use.

@stayplasticfree on Instagram shared this AWESOME tip for having Amazon replace plastic packaging with paper.

  • Go to your Amazon account
  • Go to “help/customer service”
  • Go to “contact us”
  • Use the chat option
  • Ask the chat agent to only use plastic packaging when absolutely necessary — and to use degradable packaging in all other cases
  • This will be applied to all future orders
  • The whole process takes about 2 minutes. This is a great way to help chip away at the problem of plastic pollution.
    In the future, the plastic bubbles that kept your goods safe will be replaced with paper.
