As the pandemic spread and the world went into lockdown, one company saw their growth skyrocket: Amazon.
Only in the third quarter of 2020, the online-retail giant tripled its profit, and saw its earnings increase by 37%. Every year, the company ships billions and billions of packages — at the expense of the environment.
According to a recent report by Oceana, Amazon produced an estimated 211 million kg of plastic packaging waste in 2019, contributing to a plastic crisis that is already out of control.
The corporation is greenwashing its way out of its environmental responsibilities by investing millions of dollars in recycling initiatives — when most recycling facilities in North America do not accept the types of plastics it uses.
It’s time Amazon kicked their plastic addiction and truly tackled plastic pollution. Tell them to invest in plastic reduction and reusable packaging solutions.
