We’re thrilled to introduce Amazon Second Chance – our one-stop shop for Amazon customers to learn how to minimise their impact on the environment via reuse, refurbishing and recycling. Here are 3 ways Amazon Second Chance can help you give your stuff a new life while helping you minimise your impact on the environment.
1. Recycle devices
Electronic items shouldn’t be thrown away or sent to landfill because they contain toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium that can create environmental and human health risks. The good news is that most e-waste is recyclable. With Amazon Second Chance, you can easily find the information that you need to recycle your devices properly.
2. Buy open-box and refurbished items
Get great deals on quality, open-box products on Amazon Warehouse. Shop for pre-owned and refurbished products with warranties on Amazon Renewed, and get great prices on warranty-backed certified refurbished Amazon devices. We call these pre-loved!
3. Recycle your packaging
Just like you, we want as much packaging as possible to be properly recycled. Second Chance provides detailed information on where and how to recycle your Amazon packaging, so you’re not left guessing.
