Flipkart has eliminated single-use plastic packaging in its fulfillment centers in India, the Walmart-owned e-commerce platform announced last week. It reached its goal while grappling with a surge in online retail demand.

The company achieved this by implementing sustainable alternatives, such as recycled paper bags to replace polythene pouches and swapping shredded carton waste in place of bubble wrap.

Flipkart is now shifting its focus to reducing single-use plastic packaging among its seller partners who fulfill orders directly from their own locations, Hemant Badri, senior vice president and head of supply chain, said in a statement.
