Amazon.com Announces New Amazon Green Program

August 14th, 2008

amazon-green.gifE-commerce giant Amazon.com announced to their affiliates this week that the company is launching a new section of its website called Amazon Green, a multi-category program that integrates several different kinds of environmentally friendly products into a single shopping interface. Earlier today I had a chance to check out the product listings, which feature an eclectic mix of items ranging from toilet tissue made from post-consumer recycled paper to a bicycle for commuters called “Iron Horse Transit”. Energy-related items such as compact fluorescent bulbs and relatively inexpensive solar panels are also included.

For those of us who are trying to make money from Amazon’s affiliate program, this provides us with an opportunity to showcase a pre-selected subset of their product line that can be targeted toward environmentally conscious consumers. If you would like to check out the products yourself, simply click on one of the banners in this post to view the main Amazon Green page. Meanwhile, I have reprinted the email text of the announcement to Amazon associates below.


Dear Amazon Associate:

Help shoppers discover the benefits of going Green. Amazon.com has launched Amazon Green, a cross-category program that includes a list of products that customers have selected as the best green products offered by Amazon.com and a place for customers to discover Amazon’s entire green product selection.
