Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the community!
For years REI has been working to design and implement sustainable options for packaging and reduce our waste across our operations. We encourage you to read more about it in our Sustainable Packaging and Reducing Waste section of our annual Stewardship Report. Additionally, you can take a look at our REI Sustainable Packaging Guidelines which were published with assistance from the Outdoor Industry Association and Sustainable Packaging Coalition. We are also connecting with the broader industry to use the How2Recycle Label, which helps consumers understand what options they have for recycling their packaging when they are done with it.
Thank you for providing your feedback and suggestions for ways to improve. We will make sure to pass them along to our sustainability team!
