#ShipNaked / #ShipGreener
What is #ShipNaked?
It’s time for the online shopping giants to ship differently via our newest email campaign. Amazon, Walmart, and Target can start by shipping products that have their own “rigid packaging” without any additional boxes or plastic packaging. By creating this simple change we will immediately reduce millions of pounds of plastic waste and cardboard waste.
What is #ShipGreener?
Many products we order online do not come in manufacturers “rigid packaging” so we are asking major online retailers to “ShipGreener” if packaging is required. This means using the correct size boxes with minimal filling, and no plastic at all. The image shown here is an example of the unnecessary amount of packaging that come with many of our online orders.
Why is this important?
850 MILLION tons of paper and cardboard are discarded annually, equaling approximately 1 Billion trees.
Amazon alone ships 1.7 million packages a day and just the # of plastic air pillows used/year could encircle the planet 500x.
Our planet needs us to reduce our footprint as much as possible.
Take Action TODAY
Join us by emailing Amazon, Walmart and Target to #ShipNaked & #ShipGreener! Our request is that they ship more responsibly and ship with less unnecessary packaging. Many products even have their own “rigid packaging” and do not require any additional boxes or plastic packaging. With just 1 click, you can send letters to these companies requesting less packaging in our online orders.

A recent study by Oceana found that Amazon.com generated 465 million pounds of plastic packaging waste in 2019. The number of plastic air pillows could circle the globe 500 times. Oceana further estimated that up to 22.44 million pounds of Amazon.com’s plastic packaging ended up in the world’s freshwater and marine ecosystems as pollution in the same year, or “roughly equivalent to a delivery van’s worth of plastic being dumped into major rivers, lakes, and the oceans every 70 minutes.”
Thanks to our #ShipNaked campaign, Amazon has finally offered consumers the option to ship their orders in the manufacturer’s original packaging. While this option is only available for specific items, it is a small step towards sustainability. Please use the tools below to encourage Target, Walmart and other major manufacturers to step up and #ShipNaked too.”
