Christmas is nearly here. That means consumers’ houses are full of Amazon prime boxes, as well as cardboard boxes from relatives and friends who shipped gifts from afar. After the holiday buzz begins to die down, many people will likely be tempted to break down the boxes and shove them into a dumpster. Amazon and Goodwill, however, have developed a solution that is both good for the environment and people of less fortune.

According to WOKV, the two companies partnered together to form the Give Back Box program, which encourages consumers to use empty shipping boxes and dispose of clutter in their homes.

After removing items from the Amazon box, users are instructed to fill the box with clean clothes, accessories, books, and other items one might find at a Goodwill. Then, they can visit GiveBackBox.com to print a free shipping label. After depositing the package at a UPS store of a post office, it will be sent to a donation site where the goods will be sorted at the nearest Goodwill participating in the Give Back Box program.

Considering humans are incredibly wasteful (particularly during the holidays), this initiative could help cut down on clutter in peoples’ homes and benefit the environment, as it causes cardboard boxes to be repurposed. Please share this news far and wide to entice others to participate in the program before the new year.
