Amazon Prime Day is an opportunity to find big discounts on green products on Amazon, whether you're looking to swap more into your life, or are just looking to save some money on essentials you buy anyway. Prime Day deals can also make sustainable products more accessible to those who want to invest in clean tech or low-waste swaps that cost more upfront.

We'd be remiss not to mention that Amazon doesn’t have the best environmental track record. These huge shopping days mean copious amounts of orders, which can lead to more trucks on roads, more traffic congestion, more carbon emissions, and more wasteful packaging with endless numbers of boxes, packing peanuts, and plastic air bubbles. We understand that some Treehugger readers prefer to avoid Amazon entirely. If you do choose to shop the sale, select a slower shipping option (no-rush), or consider using online shopping as a way to cut down on your own driving. Be sure to reuse and recycle packaging materials whenever possible.

You do have to be a Prime Day member to participate in the two days of sales, but you can sign up for a free 30-day membership—just be sure to cancel before those days are up. If you want to shop a bit more locally, Amazon now has Amazon Handmade, and you can shop by region to help support small businesses.

If you don't want to sign up for another membership, check out the matching deals at Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Wayfair, Our Place, Brooklinen, and more.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon Prime Day starts on Tuesday, July 12, and ends at the end of the day on Wednesday, July 13, 2022. Prime day sales start at midnight Pacific Time on the selected start day (Monday) and run until 11:59 Pacific Time on the second day (Tuesday). 

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is an annual deal event available for Amazon Prime members. The event is two days long, and prices on products from top brands and small businesses are slashed, giving consumers one of the biggest online sales events of the year. According to Amazon’s website, in 2020, Prime Day shoppers saved $1.4 billion on products across the site. Third-party sellers made over $3.5 billion on Prime Day, and the fastest Prime Day delivery was less than 30 minutes. 

What Type of Discounts Do You See?

Previous eco-friendly Prime Day deals have included power banks, organic bedding, reusable sandwich bags, sustainable self-care products, reusable utensils, and earth-friendly children’s toys—just to name a few. Discounts vary per brand, so check out the Climate Pledge Friendly products on Amazon to shop by category. 

Are There Other Brands That Also Have Sales Around Prime Day?

Last year, Walmart, Target, Nordstrom, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Old Navy were all among brands having sales to compete with Prime Day. Deals included tech, home, toys, appliances, and clothing.

Can You Shop Small During Prime Day?

According to Amazon, last year’s Prime Day highlighted small businesses and resulted in record-setting sales by independent sellers. Usually, small retailers on Etsy push their own Prime Day-adjacent deals, with markdowns on personalized items and eco-friendly items.

Below are some of the most popular deals from 2021.
