Sadly, it is Amazon Prime Day. That's 48hrs of people buying things they don't need, having it transported to them within a day and no doubt will end up in landfill with the rest of the useless tat that people inevtiably end up throwing out.
@Amazon 's carbon footprint is staggering. In 2018, Amazon emitted 44.4 million metric tons of carbon dioxide — greater than the carbon footprint of Switzerland.
Outside of it's impact on the environment, Amazon is also killing small business and the high street, who simply cannot compete with their low prices and "convenience".
