2020 Eco-Friendly Amazon Gift Guide

I can't believe it's already time for the holidays... man did this year fly by!

Even though the holidays encourage excessive consumption of products, it's important to be mindful of what we buy and how.

This gift guide compiles products found on Amazon that were chosen because they mentioned somewhere in the description that these products were ethically sourced/made or made out of eco-friendly or sustainable materials.

Shopping Sustainably on Amazon

Shopping online uses a lot of resources from excess packaging to the emissions caused from transporting the items to you.

When it comes to shopping sustainably on Amazon, here's a few tips on reducing the carbon footprint.

Climate Pledge Friendly Products

Amazon has created a badge to easily identify products and brands that are committed to meet certain sustainability standards that Amazon has put in place.

You can identify those products with this badge.

Choose frustration-free packaging.

This is offered on select items and uses only the product packaging without an extra layer of packaging, which will show what's inside.

You have the option to hide it by choosing Amazon packaging, however, if you don't mind and you're looking to save some packaging then opt to go without the Amazon packaging.

It might look something like this when you're shopping.

Shop second hand on amazon

When you buy second hand, you're reducing waste by saving the resources it takes to create a new product.

You also might be saving the item from going to a landfill, and you save some money! That's a win-win!

Look for the "buy used" option when you add it to your cart. It might look something like this when you're shopping.
