Did you know with the growth of online shopping, the amount of cardboard generated for just a year of deliveries in New York City could fill the Empire State Building 50,000 times? The simplest way to help cut back on packaging waste is to avoid buying single items online that require a box, packaging material and fuel to get to you. Instead, fill your virtual shopping cart over time and try to get multiple items together in one box. Or better yet, buy from a local business and try to buy online only when you absolutely must.
