How to Reduce Packaging When Ordering From Amazon

Hey!  Thanks for stopping by!  About a year ago, Steve and I asked that our Amazon account be marked to have items packaged more sustainably with less plastic packaging. We also asked that items be mailed together as a group rather than sent individually. The results have been good, and we get very little plastic packaging in the mail as a result. Below I have compiled links and videos that will help you receive a more sustainably packaged orders, as well as links that give information about package recycling and Amazon sustainability efforts. Best wishes and thanks for taking care of the planet!
