I know we keep reading about it, but seeing is believing.I bought something recently and unravelled the brown paper all round the garden. I estimate 60 feet.Recycle bin now full.The box the item came in was so big I reckon it could be deemed "affordable housing".When is Amazon going to change this ?

Not at all wanting to be confrontational and as a regular customer of Amazon I have encountered this, but since I'm not too concerned about environmental issues and not being in a council area that segregates our refuse I am only too glad that my item arrives in pristine condition.

Vinny, so the millions of tonnes of plastic killing our ocean life doesn't concern you then ?

No, John, it's someone else's problem. I'm presently partial to a White Fish ready meal from Lidl's containing Pangasius. Apparently it is a species found in Vietnam and from the taste of it I'd reckon it is a bottom feeder, tastes like mouthfuls of dirt I used to eat as a child. We'll survive, probably life expectancy will be lower, but we'll survive until only the rich remain! Then the fun and games will begin. Thank the wee man for cheap Lidl's lager, cheers! XxX

card and paper is bio degradable so if Amazon send me a nice big box it fills with junk and goes in the attic...plastic however? it is the devils own turds,It not only injures wildlife and clogs things up but it looks messy and will not go away.....

450 billion plastic bottles per annum produced globally and 100 billion of them produced for coca cola.
