Dealing With Amazon Stuffing

Amazon reels off yards of brown paper wadding it all up to fill the voids in their packaging.
To cram it all in it would fill my recycle bin leaving no room for the weekly contributions.
I flattened it all out

then rolled it up into one roll.

Done deal.

How many trees die each day for Amazon?


  1. You are genus and conservationist... and that is good.

  2. So sad to see it in the bin. I'm sure I could use it for something! I hate throwing good stuff away.

  3. That is a good idea! Sometimes I think the packaging must cost the send as much as the item in it.

  4. it's a huge issue .. even in sf where recycling and composting is top priority, thought u may enjoy this quick post on the recent issues with it (2016) http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2016/02/17/online-shopping-cardboard-boxes-recycling-recology/
