Climate warning

Amazon is generating more plastic packaging in the US than before ⚠️

Amazon used more plastic packaging in the US in 2022. Amazon is using less plastic packaging in some countries due to regulations, but not in the US. This plastic waste can harm the environment and marine life.
They estimate Amazon's plastic waste in the US in 2022 could circle the Earth over 200 times. Despite pressure, Amazon hasn't made significant commitments to reduce plastic use.
Amazon should do more to reduce its plastic footprint, considering its size and influence.

      With their capability they need to focus on other friendly packaging alternatives.

          This is beyond frustrating! Amazon is a leader, they should be LEADING on sustainability efforts. Not using the excuse of a lack of regulations in the US to pump out plastic waste.

            This is so disappointing, especially in the context of growing environmental awareness. Amazon should address this issue to prevent detrimental impact on the environment.

              Plastic pollution is a big threat to the marine life and environmental, Amazon should be held accountable

                Amazon should be heavily penalized for the increase in plastic pollution..the government should make sure that they take responsibility of their actions.

                  The biggest conglomerate in the US having to use plastics is just plain wrong! Why can't they dedicate resources to alternative packaging ?

                    Amazon is one of the richest and most powerful companies in the world if they want to change the way things are done, they have the power to do so. No excuses!

                      I had assumed Amazon understands how important banning plastic is because it used non-plastic packaging in my home country. Sadly that is not the case. Apparently everything is business for big companies, with no second thought to climate wastage.
