Affiliate Marketing & Sustainability: Planting the Seed for Online Growth

In celebration of Earth Day – an occasion to celebrate the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970 – we highlight the brands on Webgains who are setting the agenda for a new way to do business sustainably and delve into the evolving relationship of affiliate marketing and sustainability.

The Landscape

Conscious consumerism is a trend that is going from niche to norm. The conversation surrounding sustainability and our ecological footprint is growing but is yet to enter the mainstream fully. Demonstrations by movements such as Extinction Rebellion coupled with conferences like COP26 and Fashion Declares are prominent in leading the conversation. In fact, Pinterest’s 2020 ‘Pinterest 100 report’ revealed that conscious consumption entered the top 20 searched for themes on their platform and as a result, was highlighted as a key trend for that year. Their 2021 article on ‘Greenaissance’ also supported the ever-increasing interest in sustainable living, reporting that 80% of consumers plan to take action on a more sustainable lifestyle in their “new normal”. In our Future of Retail white paper, we delved into the rising prominence of sustainability in brand’s products, their business strategy, as well as consumers’ lifestyles.

The companies and products that want to improve their ecological footprint are as diverse as the attitude towards sustainability itself. Whether the products are second-hand, upcycled, recycled, sustainably produced using organic farming, or hold ethical and environmentally recognised accreditation. The landscape varies and each segment gains potential for incredible reach through affiliate marketing.
