Maintaining an eco-friendly home is a multilayered process, entailing everything from switching up your cleaning routine to changing the way you shop. Thankfully, a new initiative from Amazon makes sustainable living a whole lot easier: The retailer has unveiled an entire section devoted to eco-friendly products, and it’s full of must-haves for every home.
Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly storefront is a curated marketplace for the site’s most sustainable products in categories like apparel, beauty, electronics, and health and household. To be featured, products must fulfill at least one environmental certification from Amazon’s partner organizations, including programs from Fairtrade International, the Rainforest Alliance, and Energy Star. Amazon has even developed its own certification program called Compact by Design, which is awarded to products that remove excess air and water from their production process, thereby reducing their carbon footprint.
Though these certification processes are rigorous, Amazon has managed to round up thousands of Climate Pledge Friendly picks that are as easy to shop as any other item on the website. Keep reading for six of the best sustainable home products you can buy through the section, and check out even more Climate Pledge Friendly household items here.
