SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 18, 2001--Amazon.com
(Nasdaq:AMZN - news; http://www.amazon.com) today announced
the launch of its new Honor System ``Earth Day Every Day'' section,
located at www.amazon.com/earthday.

Launching the week before the International Earth Day Celebration on April
22, 2001, the Amazon Honor System ``Earth Day Every Day'' section allows
visitors to ``tip'' their favorite environmentally friendly sites and help
support the sites' online content. Participating sites provide a variety of
content for people seeking advice on energy conservation, protecting the
environment and recycling, and for those who just enjoy the outdoors.
Visitors to these sites now have a safe and easy way to tip as little as $1
in exchange for the valuable content they receive. The ``Earth Day Every
Day'' section is a permanent page that will highlight informative
environmental sites throughout the year, and we will add additional
environmental sites on an ongoing basis.

The Amazon Honor System ``Earth Day Every Day'' section features
some of the leading environmental sites, including:
