7 Ethical Products to Buy on Amazon Prime Day
Amazon is rapidly taking over the retail world, accounting for nearly half of all ecommerce sales in the US.
One of Amazon’s most-marketed features is its Prime service, which, among other things, offers free 2-day shipping.
To further push Prime sales, the company created Prime Day on June 11, a Black Friday-esque event that’s exclusive to Amazon and exclusively online.
If you’re a Prime customer, here are seven ethical things to buy today.
1/ LED Light Bulbs
LED light bulbs are great for the environment and will save you up to 90% on your electricity bill, according to the brand.
Today, they’re 64% off.
It’s easy to forget, but Amazon started off as an online bookseller. Today, the company is the largest online distributor of books in the world.
3/ Indoor Plants
Indoor plants purify and perfume the air, they look great, and they’re an easy way to get an introduction to gardening.
4/ Paper Straws
Single-use plastic straws are a menace to the environment. These paper straws are a simple and biodegradable alternative.
5/ Theo Chocolate
If you’re in the mood for a treat, order Theo chocolate, the first organic, fair trade certified chocolate maker in North America. They source their beans from the Norandino cooperative in Peru and Esco Kivu in the Democratic Republic of Congo. All their beans are Fair Trade and Fair For Life or Demeter Certified — meaning Theo can be certain their beans are sustainably grown and that their farmers receive above market wages.
This isn’t a Prime Day sale, but you can find Theo chocolate here.

6/ Cleaning Supplies
Many cleaning supplies contain harsh chemical ingredients that are hazardous to the environment. Mrs. Meyers soap products are primarily derived from plants.
7/ Reusable Water Bottle
Reusable water bottles are an excellent way to cut down on your plastic consumption, both by avoiding plastic water bottles and plastic straws.
