Amazon’s new boxes are not only more environmentally friendly, they can be turned into a fun getaway for your cat. Instead of silently staring at you from the depths of an ordinary oil box, your cats can look at you with love (and perhaps still some condemnation) from a more imaginative creation.
In an effort to make their packaging more durable and reduce their carbon footprint, Amazon has worked with their team of engineers to reduce the amount of materials used in each box while ensuring they are still robust enough to protect your goods during shipping. But they do not want their boxing efficiency to end there: they want to give you some ways to reuse their boxes before you chuck them in the trash. This process is called upcycling, and other similar efforts have already been made by other companies such as Samsung.
Who made the Amazon figure the best target for box-up cycling? Your cat, of course, because as everyone knows, cats love crates. Amazon has published detailed instructions on their website to turn your cat into a box fast or a cat flat. If you have children, there are also a few options that they can enjoy, such as a box car, windmills for a DIY mini golf course or a delightful rocket boat (although your cats will probably enjoy these creations as well). You can even create a boxy robot that you or your little ones can wear as a suit or set up next to your litter box to flash back to your cat. Happy craftsmanship!
