The response to Prime Day has been more than overflowing shopping carts. Champions of sustainable shopping have called it a day that promotes an extreme form of consumerist culture prompting us to buy things we don't need.

And here's our list to help you do just that. We scoured through wish lists and came up with this list to get you started. So gear up! Amazon Prime Day 2019 starts at 12:00 midnight on Monday, July 15 and ends on Tuesday, July 16 at 11:59 pm.
