LOS ANGELES—Have you been crabbing that Amazon is being environmentally out-to-lunch with its packaging which is not curbside recyclable? Here is the Feel Good Solution.
Here is their brilliant answer: Goodwill and Amazon have partnered in their GiveBackBox® program.
It’s really simple. When you get your new stuff from Amazon. Fill the box with your Goodwill items; get a free shipping label; get free pick up from UPS (there are drop off services at both US Post Offices and UPS); shipping is free. All the minutiae can be handled online. No trips to Goodwill (or your favorite charity).
Amazon boxes just lying around the house are eligible for this program.
