Just remember to save those empty cardboard boxes.

It’s the holiday season and ‘tis the season to give back. Local online megastore Amazon is teaming up with Goodwill to make such good deeds that much easier, reports KIRO7.
If you, like the 10 million Americans on this past Black Friday, shopped online for a lot of your holiday gifting then you are bound to be up to your eyeballs in cardboard boxes. Don’t recycle them just yet. Using Give Back Box, Amazon and Goodwill want to help you give that box a second life: Fill empty boxes with donation items (clothing, household stuffs, etc.), print a free shipping label, and it will get sent to the nearest Goodwill. Boom, good deed done dirt cheap, or rather, free!
See? Donating made easy. And all to help Goodwill’s efforts on “employment placement, job training and other community-based services to create strong families and communities.” You can read more about the program on Amazon’s sustainability page.
