Sustainable Shopping Made Simple


  1. Look for products with sustainable or eco-friendly certifications. When shopping on Amazon, keep an eye out for certifications like FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) or Rainforest Alliance. These certifications indicate that the product was produced in an environmentally responsible way.

  2. Consider purchasing used or refurbished products. Not only is this often more affordable, it also helps to extend the life of a product and reduce waste. Amazon has a wide selection of used and refurbished products available, from electronics to home goods.

  3. Choose products that are shipped in eco-friendly packaging. Look for products that are shipped in cardboard boxes made from recycled materials, or packaging that is biodegradable or compostable.

  4. Take advantage of Amazon's carbon neutral shipping program. If you're a Prime member, you can opt in to Amazon's carbon neutral shipping program. This means that the carbon emissions from the transportation of your orders are offset through investments in renewable energy and carbon reduction projects.
