Amazon said it plans to reduce the use of plastic packaging in Germany because the online retailer is causing a mountain of garbage

BERLIN-Amazon said it plans to reduce the use of plastic packaging in Germany after complaints that the online retailer is contributing to a mountain of garbage.

The company said on Monday that its German logistics center will replace all disposable plastic packaging with paper bags or cardboard boxes by the end of the year.

The company said that exceptions may occur when product packaging provided by third-party sellers can be relabeled for delivery, and when couriers are required to leave the product outdoors during rains.
