What is Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging?


According to Amazon’s own definition, Frustration-Free Packaging is packaging that is made of 100% recyclable materials, easy to open, and designed to ship products in their original packaging, which eliminates the need for an additional shipping box. "Frustration-Free Packaging" was designed with the customer in mind, making it easier to liberate products from their packages while also reducing waste.


Frustration Free Packaging Should Be: 

- Protective

- Cost Effective

- Easy To Open

- Low Waste
