All the rumors are true: Amazon Prime Day 2024 is right around the corner. As usual, it’ll be a two-day savings event loaded with some of the biggest discounts of the year on millions of items sitewide. And the savings start now — Amazon has already dropped some juicy early Prime Day deals, and that includes some of our favorite green and sustainable products at the lowest prices of the year.
Amazon Prime Day will happen on July 16 and 17 this year. But set your alarm, because Amazon means business. The main event will start first thing in the morning at 12:01am PT on Wednesday July 16, and end a minute before midnight on Thursday July 17. The deals will constantly be in flux — some deals will expire or sell out and new deals will launch all throughout the 48-hour event, so it’s important to check back regularly.
When you think of Earth-friendly companies, Amazon is probably not the first name that comes to mind, and that’s understandable. A company this massive is responsible for its fair share of carbon emissions, resource consumption, packaging waste, and even questionable labor practices, so we’re not sugar-coating it.
But if there’s something you need to buy, it’s understandable that you’d want to take advantage of the reduced prices of Amazon Prime Day. Here’s a look at a few of Amazon’s sustainability commitments:
We’re all very aware of Amazon’s vast inventory and competitive everyday prices, but how much do you know about the opportunities to shop sustainably on Amazon? There are plenty. So if you feel overwhelmed by the mass consumerism of Prime Day but want to score some incredible deals responsibly, here’s what we suggest:
While the rest of the Prime Day shoppers are stocking up on Amazon Echo and Kindle products, I’ll be snapping up this genius Smart Reusable Notebook by Rocketbook. It’s an eco-friendly, erasable notebook with lined “pages” that work with any pen from the Pilot Frixion line, also available on Amazon. Just wipe it clean with a damp cloth and reuse it endlessly. This sustainable alternative to traditional notebooks helps reduce paper waste while offering the convenience of digital storage — just sync it to the Rocketbook app to scan and save your notes to the cloud.
One of Amazon’s most popular natural skincare brands, Weleda, is running a bunch of early Prime Day deals, so it’s a good time to stock up. Skin Food Body Lotion is one of the best discounts we found at 40 percent off, and it’s Climate Pledge Friendly. The creamy formula is infused with responsibly harvested, plant-based ingredients like chamomile, rosemary, and calendula, and the packaging is recyclable when you’re done.
HMCITY Solar Lights are an energy-efficient solution for illuminating your home’s porch or entryway. They use 120 solar-powered LED lights activated by motion detection to let you know if someone’s at your door. And they’ll function at their best in any kind of weather: they’re waterproof, heat-proof, and corrosion-resistant. Plus, they’re designed for easy wireless installation.
You’re going to have to act fast to score this Early Access deal, as there’s a limited supply — and they’re a whopping 45 percent off.
If you’re a manual toothbrush user, there are so many reasons to replace your used-up plastic one with these Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes. Not only are they eco-friendly and Climate Pledge Friendly with recyclable packaging, but the BPA-free bristles are gentle on your teeth’s enamel, and they’re soft enough even for toddlers. This pack of 10 comes with letters on each toothbrush so each family member can identify theirs.
Stock up for the whole year at almost 40 percent off.
Attention campers, hikers, and anyone who spends time in the great outdoors: the iconic LifeStraw Personal Water Filter — an Amazon No. 1 best-seller — is on sale for early Prime Day. The portable, lightweight device is able to make any water drinkable by removing more than 99.9 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites without the use of chemicals, iodine, or even batteries.
Redefine the idea of clean laundry with Kind Detergent Sheets, an eco-friendly, zero-waste laundry detergent made from plant-derived ingredients. These unscented sheets are free from harsh chemicals, so they’re great for sensitive skin. They’re designed to dissolve completely in water and come in lightweight, plastic-free packaging. Don’t forget to select Subscribe & Save for auto-delivery of this household staple and an even bigger discount.
