Why Buy From Amazon? A Different Viewpoint2516811
You were expecting a list of reasons such as how inexpensive products are, how simple the shopping procedure is etc. No - we are going to concentrate on other answers to the question: Why buy from Amazon? "Shoppers vote with their wallets" is a modern adaptation of an old adage. Companies realize that their continued achievement largely depends on the extent to which they are able to retain the self-confidence and respect of their customers.
Corporate social responsibility is an essential aspect of a business' ethical behavior. Recognizing this, Amazon.com have launched some interesting projects designed to decrease the influence of purchasing, packaging and transport on the atmosphere and supporting numerous community organizations.
Environmentally Friendly Packaging: A project which will run over a number of years, known as "Frustration-Free Packaging" is aimed at making it simpler to get your product out of its packaging by encouraging manufacturers to do away with unnecessary, annoying packaging. An additional project is aimed at reducing the bulk of boxes and protective material used in shipping. Sellers use a software plan to choose the best size box. Corrugated containers and other paper packaging materials are one hundred% recyclable. Air-pillows used as protection inside boxes can be deflated, take up less than 1% of their original volume, are fully recyclable and non-toxic. Clients can now upload pictures or problematic packaging with comments - these are used to further improvement.
Eco-Friendly Building Design: Some of the numerous newest projects consist of: The new headquarters in Seattle - a conscious choice was made to build eco-friendly, sustainable buildings. The new corporate workplace in Munich was constructed with sustainable building supplies and interiors conform to highest energy efficiency rules. Recycled supplies had been used in the construction of four fulfillment centers built in 2009 and these buildings use all-natural lighting controls.
This initiative encourages purchasers and sellers of eco-friendly products to buy and sell goods such as clothes, toys and home improvement products. This is enhanced by the availability of an "Amazon Green Gift Card" which can be used to purchase eco-friendly products.
Neighborhood support actions:
Amazon Want Lists: non profit organizations are in a position to list their requirements on-line. Customers using the Amazon sites are able to donate directly to the various organizations and are assured that they are meeting a particular need and their donations are not being used to fund administrative costs or finding its way into the wrong pockets. An added extra is that clients know that their payments are safe and safe due to patented payment technology.
