Why I am leaving Amazon

Amazon is happy to feed our collective consumption addiction — an addiction spread by the virus of separation.

It feels like a naively self-limiting act of rebellion to reject the platform that controls such a vast majority of the market. Yet here I am.

The system reeks from a lack of transparency, accountability, fairness, and integrity.

Every purchase we make through their platform is casting a vote for them to continue their questionable business practices, unchecked.

I have no choice but to take my energy back from Amazon, because their practices are not aligned with my values.

Amazon’s free delivery is not truly free. In fact, it’s very expensive. It’s time to stop compromising our values for the sake of convenience.
