NEWS: Black Friday packaging petition

More than 2,000 people have signed an online petition which tells Amazon 'to stop polluting our planet with single-use plastic packaging' ahead of Black Friday.

The petition says: "If you are one of Amazon's 100 million+ customers you have probably received your fair share of unnecessary plastic packaging from the ecommerce giant.

"From polystyrene packing peanuts to non-recyclable bubble wrap to plastic-wrapped pouches of air, nearly every Amazon order arrives buried in heaps of wasteful single-use plastic packaging. "And all of this pointless plastic packaging that is designed to be used once and then tossed will plague our planet for generations to come.

As Black Friday and Cyber Monday (two of Amazon's biggest money-making days of the year) approach, we are calling on the ecommerce giant to stop polluting our planet with pointless plastic packaging.

"More than 8 million metric tons of plastic pollution ends up in our oceans each year, and plastic packaging is a huge contributor."
