While much of the attention on sustainable food packaging focuses on the point of purchase, Amazon has unveiled a solution for the point of delivery.

Perishables deliveries from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market now will come in “curbside recyclable” insulated paper packaging.

Made from recycled paper, the paper packaging is convenient for customers to recycle at home because it’s ‘curbside recyclable,’ according to Amazon.

Seattle-based Amazon said its shift to all curbside-recyclable insulated packaging will cut back on material waste, replacing about 735,000 pounds of plastic film, 3.15 million pounds of natural cotton fiber and 15 million pounds of non-recyclable mixed plastic annually.
