“It’s the best way for sustainability to get to scale in a way that hasn't happened yet.”
-Cyrus Wadia, Amazon's Head of Sustainable Product
As customers, choosing between the so-called green products may be confusing. However, with the launch of Amazon Aware, Amazon is bringing timeless, everyday products—plus sustainability attributes—into customers’ daily lives.
*The Climate Pledge was co-founded in September 2019 by Amazon and Global Optimism. The pledge highlights products that are certified by one or more of the program’s qualifying sustainability certifications, including Amazon’s Compact by Design or Pre-owned Certified certifications (Amazon).
