Tell Amazon to promote green shipping

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos:

As one of the largest online retailers in the U.S., it's important for Amazon to take the lead in establishing practices that are better for our planet.

When your customers choose two-day shipping, that means tighter deadlines, which means half-full trucks, more trips and less efficiency -- and that results in a lot more carbon emissions.

There is one simple step you can take for our planet that would have a huge impact: Alert customers that standard shipping is greener by adding "Go Green" before that option. By nudging shoppers towards choosing standard, you can help reduce emissions that contribute to climate change.

It's almost the holiday season -- I urge you to make this simple but profound change before millions of Americans start buying their gifts.
