Smile! Your online purchases can now help support Sustainable America.

Through its new AmazonSmile program, Amazon will donate .05% of eligible purchases to a charity of your choice, including Sustainable America, every time you shop. We’re inviting all our supporters to participate!

It’s simple:

1. Click this unique link:

2. Sign in and start shopping!

You can use your existing login, and you’ll be able to access your shopping cart, Wish List, registries and other account settings as usual. The next time you shop, AmazonSmile will remember that you’re supporting Sustainable America. It’s easy and automatic! AmazonSmile donations are made from the AmazonSmile Foundation, which is funded by Amazon.

Even though half of a percent isn’t much, every bit adds up — and it’s easy and free for you to participate.

We’re happy to be participating in AmazonSmile, but your direct donations are still crucial to support our work making our nation’s food and fuel systems more sustainable. You can make a donation here: Thank you!
