LUBBOCK, Texas (PRWEB) September 23, 2020
Textile Exchange today announced that it is participating in Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly, a new program to help make it easy for customers to discover and shop for more sustainable products. Customers will now see the Climate Pledge Friendly label when searching for more than 25,000 products to signify that the products have one or more of 19 different sustainability certifications that help preserve the natural world.
Amazon evaluated hundreds of external sustainability certifications and chose organizations that certify products that have demonstrated environmentally-related sustainability benefits. Textile Exchange is proud to be one of the third-party entities certifying Climate Pledge Friendly products.
“We are thrilled to partner with Amazon for Climate Pledge Friendly, ultimately making it easier for customers to discover and shop more sustainable products,” said Ashley Gill, Director of Standards at Textile Exchange. “Amazon’s high bar for choosing certifications align with Textile Exchange’s commitment to rigorously and transparently certify consumer products. Amazon’s new program will encourage brands and manufacturers to manufacture and source more sustainably, get certified, and grow their product selection.”
The selection for Climate Pledge Friendly includes grocery, household, fashion, beauty and personal electronics products, as well as other items from a range of categories—from brands such as Burt’s Bees Baby, Honest Company, Seventh Generation, and HP Inc., among others.
