Reduce Amazons Use of Plastic
Plastic waste is a huge problem in our world. About 300 MILLION tons of plastic is produced each year. Only 10% is recycled and the rest ends up in our landfills or oceans. Plastic takes up to thousands of years to decompose. Amazon, one of the biggest companies in the world, uses plastic packaging in almost all 608 million packages it ships each year. Our goal is for Amazon to begin to use packaging made of biodegradable material such as starch based polymers.
