Do you order from Amazon?
211 million kilos of plastic packaging waste was generated by Amazon last year! All the air pillows, bubble wrap, foam packaging and other plastic that they ship would circle the Earth 500 times, according to a new report from Oceana. Even worse, up to 10 million kilos of Amazon's plastic waste ended up polluting the world's freshwater and marine ecosystems last year. That's the equivalent of dumping a delivery van full of plastic into the oceans every 70 minutes! Most of their plastic isn't destined for recycling and instead goes into landfills, incinerators or just straight into the environment where it stays forever. That's just a few of the many reasons to stay away from Amazon!
