Amazon facing vote from shareholders and environmentalists this week to cut its use of plastic
Seattleites may have caught wind of the campaign on Amazon already, through billboards and yard signs featuring turtles caught in plastic. The message: stop using its flimsy plastic packaging that too easily ends up in marine ecosystems.
Amazon holds its annual investors meeting this morning at 9:00 a.m.
In it, they'll advise shareholders to vote 'no' on a resolution that would require the corporation to cut down plastic pollution.
The resolution would require the company to take two steps it never has before on plastics.
Those are: disclose how much plastic packaging it uses, and strategize how to move away from the thin, land-fill bound packaging it uses now.
