When placing an order, click “Help” at the top. Select “Contact Us” and start an online chat with an Amazon representative. Once the chat opens, tell the agent you’d like to stop using plastic packaging in your deliveries and the agent will add a note to your account. Your account will note that you’d like to use paper instead of plastic. Then, when the delivery comes, recycle all the paper!
Users have gotten mixed results from trying this but we recommend chatting with an Amazon specialist to request that Amazon remove plastic from their orders! Give feedback to the company to get them to reduce plastic in orders and switch to paper instead.
