Recycle Amazon Boxes

The rise of electronic commerce has Amazon as its main exponent. Undoubtedly, amazon It has become the largest online shopping platform of the largest American e-commerce company and since the coronavirus pandemic, its sales and income have increased even more.

If we talk about the cardboard sleeves in which Amazon usually sends books, CDs, video games and others, these sleeves can be used as organizers inside a large drawer. Here we can place some of our less used, more exclusive discs or that we want to keep better protected.

Toys for animals or children

We already know that pets love to play in cardboard boxes. It may be that you use an Amazon box, no matter how big it is, it is not going to give you to make a shed, but it is for a small bed for your small dog or cat to lie on.

You can build armor and helmets, swords and shields and anything else you can think of by cutting up materials. Of course, first make sure to eliminate all plastic products and choking hazards in both cases.

composting

It can also be shredded and used as a “brown” material for your compost. Compost is a natural fertilizer created from the action of bacteria, fungi and worms on organic or biological waste from your home (food scraps, dry plants, etc).

It has a triple function: to serve as fertilizer to improve the properties of the soil in our garden, it serves as food for plants and, at the same time, we recycle household waste, such as Amazon boxes, using them for compost. The brown material provides the carbon and is found in materials such as dry leaves and branches, straw, wood chips, cardboard or paper that contains little or no ink, napkins and toilet paper tubes.

These are just some of the many ideas to reuse your Amazon boxes. Like any other cardboard box, you can also visit some of the best craft websites and you may find some other idea to give these containers a second life.
