Amazon.com option means less plastic

WorldChanging reports that Amazon.com has adopted a “Frustration-Free Package” program for some of its products. This means the dreaded, seemingly impenetrable plastic outer packaging has been replaced by easy-to-open cardboard.

Less frustration, less plastic waste. Not many offerings: a few toys, SD cards and computer mice. All, not incidentally, made of plastic. But a big player like Amazon.com can make a significant difference, if the purchases are themselves thoughtful.  Two cheers for now, and worth revisiting.
