Amazon Sustainability Accelerator returns to find leading start-ups in recycling innovation to scale them up.

The second Amazon Sustainability Accelerator launches today, inviting early stage, sustainability-focused start-ups to apply for the programme. Launched by Amazon, EIT Climate-KIC, Europe’s leading climate innovation hub, and WRAP, a leading UK climate action NGO, the Accelerator is open to start-ups who are creating more sustainable consumer products and, for the first time, those developing technology that can help the industry recycle products more effectively and efficiently.
Last year’s Accelerator participants, including nine companies from the UK and Ireland, raised more than £4.5 million, and increased sales on and off Amazon by an average of more than 250% following their participation in the Accelerator. The programme accepted 12 of the 1,300 applications, including SURI, a UK-based start-up that designs, manufactures and sells electric reusable and repairable toothbrushes with replacement heads made from plant-based materials. SURI co-founder, Mark Rushmore, says the Accelerator added “enormous value”, helping his business grow from “zero revenue to significantly over £1 million in a short period”.
