Tell Amazon: Stop Polluting Our Planet With Plastic Packaging
From polystyrene peanuts to non-recyclable bubble wrap to plastic-wrapped pouches of air, almost every Amazon order arrives wrapped in plastic packaging that is then thrown away or littered.
A new report estimates that Amazon generated 465 million pounds of plastic packaging waste in 2019 of which 22+ million pounds is now polluting the world’s oceans and waterways. This the equivalent of Amazon dumping a delivery van’s worth of plastic into the ocean every hour and 10 minutes!
And the problem has only grown worse since COVID began as the pandemic has fueled huge growth in Amazon sales.
Amazon claims to be "obsessed" with giving its customers exactly what they want, so it's time for all of us to demand that they make a big change to their packaging practices.
Sign this petition to join Beyond Plastics and other members of the Break Free From Plastic coalition to tell Amazon to STOP polluting our planet with single-use plastic packaging.
From: [Your Name]
I urge you to stop using all single-use plastic packaging and to offer customers a plastic-free packaging option at check-out by no later than 2022.
