If you’re an Amazon shopper, go through Amazon Smile to direct your funds to an environmental organization

Shopping through Amazon Smile is a painless way to donate to your favorite environmental charity (with no cost to you). A half of a percent of your purchase will go directly to your chosen eligible 501(c)(3) organization.

First go to the secure Amazon Smile page (this is different than the regular Amazon front page). From there you can choose your charity. We donate to NRDC and The Nature Conservancy, but Sierra Club, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and many, many others are available.

To make sure all of your Amazon purchases generate income for your charity of choice, you need to bookmark the Amazon Smile page and go through that every time you shop. Don’t do what we did and order something expensive only to realize later that you could have also given a generous sum to an organization in need.
