Well, as it turns out, there’s a lot you can do if you’re ordering from Amazon! Here’s a link with some great tips on lowering your plastic waste.
One way is to order in groups for delivery so that it comes with less packaging and traveling needed or take advantage of Amazon Day where all your orders are delivered on the same day of the week.
