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. Have a great tip? Email me at John@themostchic.com
