Starting at 3pm today, Amazon is offering hundreds of deals to its Prime customers. The Prime Day discounts apply to all different departments, but if you’re shopping for eco-friendly, sustainable products, start here. We’ve rounded up air purifiers, solar lights, and steel water bottles that’ll be on sale…. for a mystery price, sometime later today.
This string of 100 LED lights adds a sustainable twinkle to any patio. The 33ft garland is powered through solar energy; when fully charged, the included solar panels provide up to 10 hours of use. You can even customize your lighting scheme with the eight different working modes, including “fireflies” and “waves.”
Investing in just one steel bottle is the easiest way to swear off plastic water bottles for good — and one of our favorite brands is on sale for Prime Day. You can grab a 17oz S’well bottle in the shimmery “supernova” color that’ll make you feel like you’re stargazing.
The air in our own homes is often the dirtiest, due to pet dander, dust, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in our paints and furnishings. This quiet air purifier filters out the particles that irritate allergies and asthma, helping you breathe easier. There’s a built-in timer that shuts it off automatically, so you won’t have to worry about running up your electric bill.
Bringing your own lunch to work isn’t just cost effective. It also helps you avoid the plastic cartons and bags that come with most quick-service salads and sandwiches. This set of BPA-free glass containers will neatly store and transport leftovers to and from the office. Best of all? You can safely stick them in the oven, freezer, dishwasher, or microwave.
Looking to upgrade your old facial cleanser to something organic? Then check out Christina Moss Naturals. The skincare line boasts vegan, BPA-free, GMO-free products that are never tested on animals. That includes this face wash, which eschews parabens and sulfates for organic ingredients that are gentle on all skin types.
Designed for infants and toddlers, this lightweight crib mattress is derived from renewable soybeans. There’s no formaldehyde, lead, or mercury in it — and it’s also missing the phthalates and chemical flame retardants in so many mattresses. This mindful formula earned Sealy a GREENGUARD Gold certification, which is awarded to products with low chemical emissions.
This colorful essential oil diffuser mists your room for up to eight hours straight. Its LED lights emit seven different hues to help you soothe and destress — and don’t worry if you drift off. The TaoTronics diffuser will automatically shut down when water is running low in its 300mL tank.
