Consolidating orders allows Target to ship your items in as few boxes as possible. You might still end up with more than one box, depending on how the order is fulfilled, but the idea is to minimize shipments, which can benefit the environment. It also means it might take a little longer for your items to arrive, but if you’re not in a rush, you’ll earn a dollar and help reduce that carbon footprint.
“Guest response has shown that many guests prefer a reduced number of deliveries, and that speed is not the only factor in a great online shopping experience,” a Target spokeswoman told Digital Commerce 360.
For now the option is only available online and not through the Target app, but if all goes well chances are it will eventually roll out to all buying options.
