If you do a lot of shopping on Amazon, you are left with a lot of cardboard boxes. You can throw them in the trash (boooo!), recycle them (yea!!!) or you can return them to Amazon. "Return them" you say? Yes, you can!
Amazon and Give Back Box® have partnered up and given a way to bring new life to your empty Amazon boxes.
3 EASY STEPS:
1. Open Your Box: Unpack your merchandise from your Amazon shipping box.
2. Pack Your Box: Fill the box with clothing, accessories and household goods you no longer need, use some packaging tape to seal it up and print your free shipping label from GiveBackBox.com.
3. Send Your Box: Let UPS or the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) deliver your box of donations for you.
You don't have to use Amazon corrugated boxes and packing materials. Any single wall box or double wall box... heck .... any box at all will work. Donations helps support employment, job training, and other community-based services to create strong families and communities. And they'll even send you a tax receipt.
Amazon also supports the responsible disposal and recycling of electronics products. To make it easier, they offer free shipping for this purpose. Go to Amazon's Recycling Web Page for more info.
