As my hubby is big on anything eco-friendly, we’ve been ordering Amazon’s Frustration Free Packaging for awhile now.   With any product that has it available, we always opt for the frustration free packaging.  Here’s what’s great about it:

It’s easy to open.  You know all those annoying twists and ties you’re always having to remove off your kid’s toys?  None of those exist on Amazon’s Frustration Free Packaging.

It’s recyclable.  Everything comes in a cardboard box that you can put out with the recycling.  It also ships in it’s own box – no additional box needed, cutting down on the materials that are used.

I truly hope that someday everything is sold and shipped as frustration free packaging.  Think of the implications it could have on cutting down on unnecessary materials.

Giveaway: In an effort to get the word out, Amazon has offered a wonderful prize pack of goodies to one lucky winner.   To enter, please comment below.

    Amazon’s frustration free packaging is great. Their kindle is one of the greatest examples of the frustration free packaging. It is packed in a nice cardboard box but all you have to do is pull a perforated tab on the front of the box and it completely opens!

  9. After too many paper cuts and broken nails, it’s great to hear about frustration free packaging.
