Kick Amazon out

Christophe Delord

Introduction

Amazon is too big and too powerful to be trusted.

I’m not happy with the idea of making people work hard in not very nice conditions just to get my product faster.

I prefer buying local products, even for a few more euros, rather than polluting the Earth by making cheap products crossing the seas or the air all around the globe.

In 2020, because of the lockdown, it became clear to me that local stores and distributors were providing much better services than some large multinationals.

Solution

I just don’t buy on Amazon anymore. But I must confess I still use the web site as a search engine.
