WASHINGTON (SBG) — In an effort to make its boxes more eco-friendly, Amazon may have just stumbled upon something fun.

As part of their "less packaging, more smiles" initiative, the company said the new containers will be smaller and lighter in order to closely match product sizes.

By squeezing more boxes into trucks, the new design would also cut down the number of trips required to make deliveries.

Amazon has published ideas for reusing the boxes. They can be upcycled into a cat condo, a rocket ship, a robot costume, a car, a fort or a windmill for mini golf.

The initiative is an integral part of Amazon's "Climate Pledge;" a commitment to become net zero carbon by 2040.
