Petition Calls for Amazon Pickup Program in Marin County

A Belvedere resident has had enough of single-use packaging and is ready to do something about it.

Pointing out that in 2018, over 3.5 billion Amazon boxes went to the landfill, Carolyn Lund has set her sights on the e-tail giant Amazon. Her goal: to get them to pilot a program which would pick up Marin County's flattened Amazon boxes for reuse.

According to Conservation International, in order to be taken seriously, this petition will require 10,000 signatures. Are you in?

In addition to the online petition, you'll find backers collecting signatures at Whole Foods Markets in Marin Saturday 2/9 and Sunday 2/10.
