5 practical tips for Amazon shoppers this Earth Month and beyond
As you shop on Amazon, look for the Climate Pledge Friendly badge, which highlights that the product addresses at least one aspect of sustainability and has been certified by one or more qualifying sustainability certifications. These include Energy Star Most Efficient, Fair Trade Certified, The Forest Stewardship Council, and Global Organic Textile Standard, among many other stringent and reputable certifications. Additionally, Amazon developed its own certifications, Compact by Design and Pre-Owned Certified. The former aims to identify products that have a more efficient design, focusing on the removal of excess air and water; while the latter is an initiative to offer more circular product choices through resale of certain goods such as electronics and tools.
In addition to looking for the Climate Pledge Friendly label, you can shop all products in one place here and add “Sustainability” to Your Interests in your Amazon account. There are over 550,000 Climate Pledge Friendly products to browse.
