Happy Buys: Earth-friendly shopping

It’s easier than ever to find responsibly made, eco-friendly products from brands that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability.

On an individual level, there are many things you can do to help protect our planet for future generations, from minimising your carbon footprint to reusing and recycling. And thinking about how you shop is one of them.

That means seeking out eco-friendly products that are made responsibly with sustainability in mind and don’t cause harm to the environment. Pay attention to the materials, ingredients, packaging used, energy consumed in manufacturing, and certification labels earned.

While it’s nearly impossible for every purchase to be 100% sustainable, 100% green, 100% recycled, and 100% carbon neutral 100% of the time, you can still make a meaningful difference by actively choosing products that are healthier for the planet — and, in turn, healthier for you.

With no forms to fill out at checkout, Amazon Pay makes it fast and easy to shop responsibly from eco-friendly merchants with a commitment to sustainability. And now more than ever, thanks to great brands and products like these, putting the earth first requires zero compromise on quality.
