Shopping for the Earth

Shopping for the Earth now offers shopping cards from many national merchants like Amazon, iTunes, LL Bean, Land's End and many others including department stores, restaurants, office supply stores, hardware stores, movie theaters, airlines, hotels and other categories.

Some merchants in this program offer 15% or more to the Sierra Club for use of their cards so you can contribute substantially without your purchase costing any more than you would ordinarily pay.

You can order shopping cards and pay for them online. You can also use the cards to shop online!

Here are the steps to get started. If you any questions along the way please e-mail us.
