🌟 Amazon Initiative - Victory for Sustainability! πŸ“¦

Today, we celebrate a monumental victory against Amazon's excessive packaging waste. Amazon now ships some orders without added packaging, and eco-friendly shipping is available at checkout. Our unwavering efforts, including a full-page letter to CEO Jeff Bezos, a petition, and direct contact with Amazon's Public Policy Group, made this possible.

Ten cities in Marin County endorsed our cause, petitioning Amazon's Board of Directors. Over twelve thousand residents supported our call for packaging reuse. Prominent Marin institutions and environmental groups joined our mission.

In the August 18, 2023, issue of the WSJ, Amazon committed to reducing packaging waste, validating the importance of our cause.

To maintain progress:

>Specify no additional packaging for Amazon orders.

>Express dissatisfaction with Amazon's single-use packaging in customer surveys.

>Advocate for national legislation on reusable e-commerce packaging.

While eleven percent of orders now ship without added packaging, our work isn't done. Every discarded package contributes to environmental harm. Together, we drive lasting change. πŸŒπŸ’š

Painted Bins

In its continued pursuit to keep food waste from the landfill, Painted Bins launched in Tiburon and Belvedere on September 17th. The launch event revealed 19 works of inspirational student art on new waste collection bins in downtown Tiburon and Belvedere Community Park. The art contains powerful messages about taking care of the earth and was created by students at Bel Aire Elementary, Del Mar Middle and Saint Hilary schools. Nearly 100 community members attended the event which featured student speakers sharing their thoughts and concerns about proper waste sorting, a recyclable art project and an art tour. Mill Valley Refuse projects that the new Painted Bins will divert approximately 4,200 pounds of food waste from the landfill each year.

Painted Bins is currently in discussions with other Marin cities to implement its collaborative approach to waste diversion. The organization unites stakeholders around the fight against food waste by working with cities to identify bin locations, local schools to create art, community organizations to co-sponsor events, and waste haulers to help execute the plan. To bring Painted Bins to your community, please visit the Painted Bins website www.PaintedBins.org.
