Amazon is expanding its “Ships in Product Packaging” program, and you get discounts for joining it

Amazon is rolling out a plan to ship items in their original packaging. Starting February 5, 2024, all third-party sellers in the U.S. and Canada using Amazon’s Fulfillment service can join the “Ships in Product Packaging” program, which sends products in the manufacturer’s packaging, avoiding extra Amazon packaging. Sellers who participate can also get a discount on fulfillment fees.

Amazon’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond reducing packaging. The company is working to lower its carbon footprint and make all shipments net-zero carbon by 2030. It uses machine learning to choose the right packaging size and has introduced recycled paper packaging for some grocery deliveries, replacing millions of pounds of plastic and non-recyclable materials. These efforts are part of Amazon’s broader goal to lessen its environmental impact and promote eco-friendly practices in its operations.
