I use affiliate links to support Knox Vegan without putting the burden on the community it’s here to serve. I only ever want to offer paid products or services that the community truly wants, not ones that are designed simply to make money off of you.
That’s where affiliate links come in. They’re a relatively invisible way to support Knox Vegan, and I can include them in a variety of posts, rather than repeatedly pitching the same tired product.
I would never include a link to anything I don't stand behind and I'll always be clear about what I have and haven't tried personally.
Here’s how they work:
When you click on an affiliate link to Amazon, Knox Vegan receives a percentage of anything you buy on Amazon within the next 24 hours, not just the stuff I link to. If you put something in your cart, that number jumps to 90 days (and ends after the first purchase).
Here's the formal Amazon disclosure statement:
Knox Vegan is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
I'm also a Gunas New York affiliate, because I love their products. They make beautiful bags and accessories, and they have the distinction of being America's first 100% vegan handbag brand. If you're looking for a more sustainable (and more stylish) alternative to the cheapie-pleather-purse-at-Target approach, this is it.
We receive product samples for some, but not all, of the product reviews we post on the site. If the item was given to us for free, we will always disclose that.
