Our Planet


Our customers want right-sized, recyclable packaging that minimizes waste and ensures damage-free delivery. We work to reinvent and simplify our sustainable packaging options using a science-based approach that combines lab testing, machine learning, materials science, and manufacturing partnerships to scale sustainable change across the packaging supply chain.

Designing packaging for Amazon starts with the customer and works backwards so we can deliver products they’ll love.

We are collaborating with others to reduce packaging waste for our customers and the planet. Since 2015, we have reduced the weight of outbound packaging per shipment by more than 41% on average, and avoided over 2 million tons of packaging material.

How Amazon is innovating to come up with the packaging of the future

Amazon teams around the world continuously work to improve packaging using a science-based approach to have a lower environmental impact, including investing in new materials, processes, and technologies.
