Ship in Amazon Packaging Option

In the event that you want Amazon to ship your item certified under the Frustration-Free Packaging program in Amazon packaging, simply choose “Ship in Amazon packaging” at checkout. These items are listed on the Amazon product page with the following language: “Item arrives in packaging that reveals what's inside. To hide it, choose Ship in Amazon packaging at checkout.” Amazon provides this option at no cost to customers.

Reducing Packaging Waste, One Package at a Time

At Amazon, we obsess over providing a great packaging experience to our customers. We introduced Frustration-Free Packaging in 2008, an innovation designed to reduce waste and delight customers with easy-to-open, 100% recyclable packaging. Since then the program has grown to include a wide range of initiatives designed to optimize packaging we use in our fulfillment centers and by working with manufacturers worldwide to help them to develop sustainable packaging for online fulfillment. In 2017 alone, you helped us reduce packaging waste by 16% and avoided 305 million shipping boxes by picking Frustration-Free Packaging products.
