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 minimizing 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.

Casual and outdoor sweaters for any outfit

Women’s Turpin Fleece Hooded Pullover | Stio

Made with ultra-soft Repreve recycled fiber, this classic Turpin hoodie from Stio is a bestseller for a reason. The breathable warmth of the microfleece, created from post-consumer plastic water bottles, provides all the coziness you need for chilly days — and the kangaroo pocket will keep your hands toasty, too. Flatlock seams and custom snaps on the side hems provide timeless style and comfort that’s easy to layer in any weather.

Hiking Crew Unisex Pullover, Ash | Keep Nature Wild

Perfect for long spring walks in the woods, this heavyweight, relaxed-fit Hiking Crew pullover is made from plush 100% cotton French terry. And the message on the front isn’t just lip service: for every product Keep Nature Wild sells, they pick up 1 pound of trash to help preserve the environment, with more than 600,000 pounds cleaned up to date.

Safe materials for healthy eating

Del Mar | My Bougie Bottle

The corals and seahorses featured in My Bougie Bottle’s Del Mar design are fittingly inspired by the ecosystem the company aims to preserve. Reusable water bottles are less harmful to the environment than most plastic bottles, which can end up in landfills and oceans. And with a leak-proof, easy-to-drink-from Flip ’n’ Sip lid, Del Mar’s double-walled vacuum-insulated stainless steel sports bottles can keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours. So making the responsible choice just makes that much more sense.

Reusable Produce Bag | Bee’s Wrap

Keep your fruits and veggies fresh and crisp with these reusable produce bags from Bee’s Wrap. The compostable, responsibly sourced, plant-based vegan wax formula is a natural alternative to plastic and silicone bags, helping keep the planet — and your future fruits and veggies — clean from pollution.
