We have come so far with environmental awareness. Everyone knows that local is better and that Amazon accounts for a massive portion of everything shipped. Why does an item like a cell phone case need to be shipped from across the country or a tool across the world? Not only does buying local stimulate the economy near you, but it also cuts down on excessive handling and shipping. Amazon has become the company it is today because of its ability to implement advanced algorithms into the business. As consumers, we could make better buying decisions with more information, information that Amazon should provide us for each item on the website. If Amazon were to add a flag indicating the country of origin and the distance the product seller is from you the customer, at the top of each product page near the description, each purchase could be carefully considered for cost versus distance of shipping. If Amazon were to require the country of manufacture, and assembly to be written out in the "about this product" section, people could make informed purchase decisions more easily. Not every country has an EPA or FDA some have nothing close some have even better controls. Let us decide who gets our money.
