Eco-Friendly Shipping Products for Amazon’s Packaging Standards

eco-friendly packaging for amazon's packaging standards

When shipping Amazon orders, all businesses must follow Amazon’s Packaging Guidelines, known as “Frustration-Free Packaging.” Any product larger than 18” x 14” x 8” or weighing over 20 pounds must meet these requirements. Failure to comply could mean a financial penalty for your business.

Understanding Amazon’s Packaging Guidelines

Amazon initiated the Frustration-Free Packaging program to meet consumer demand for shipping materials that are both protective and practical. According to these standards, packaging should be:

  • Easy to open with no plastic clamshells or wire ties
  • Certified to minimize product damage during transit
  • 100% reusable and curbside recyclable
