Lots of packaging waste is due to online shopping so try to buy local instead. When you do buy online, group your purchases, don't opt for extra-fast shipping, and request less and recyclable packaging. After you receive your purchase, try to reuse the packaging before disposal.
Air pillows can also be collected and returned to most mail and shipping businesses (ex. UPS, Postal Annex). Call any store first, locations vary.
