Request all companies selling products online to minimise plastics/cellotapes in packaging

Few days back, I had ordered 4-5 home products from Amazon. The size of the cartoon was too large for the products, packed with too much cellotapes and filled up with near-about 20 air sealed packets which was not needed at all. Moreover I had no idea how to dispose off those air-sealed packets. Henceforth, I decided not to order anything from online websites until and unless it was very essential.

But everyday lakhs of people order products from these websites. Can you imagine the amount of wastes these packaging materials cause? If we want to bring some positive change, first of all we need to be a part of it ourselves.

So all companies who sell their products through online mode need to minimise the use of plastic, cellotapes, air-sealed packets and all sorts of unnecessary things in their packaging. They must use eco-friendly packaging materials and train their respective employees properly regarding this. They must also provide options on their website to their customers to return the packaging materials for recycling purpose. Most of the people don't know how to dispose off the packaging materials and they are thrown away only to end up in the environment leading to pollution.

So its a request to the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF), Dr Harsh Vardhan to take the necessary steps for this. Please enforce some stringent laws for these companies and take steps to create awareness among people.
