Recode is reporting that Amazon has announced that its next two massager lines are going to be made with silicone, not plastic, which could potentially have more positive effects on the environment.
Amazon says that its new products will be made of the silicone and will be compatible with its Amazon Prime service.
The company has previously announced that it will no longer make silicone massagers, which it said were too expensive.
Amazon is the latest to make the announcement, with competitors including Walmart, Target, and Kohl’s.
The company is also working on a new line of silicone massage toys that will use its Amazon Echo speaker, but this will be released later this year.
Amazon is not making the new silicone products for a few reasons.
One, it is trying to avoid the backlash from some customers who have been unhappy about Amazon’s previous plastic-filled products, which they felt were too cheap.
Two, it says it will focus on its Prime service, which offers discounts on many of its products.
