THE BIG IDEA
1. YOU CLICK ON LINKS
Shop Green is an online fundraising platform allowing you to shop at hundreds of your favourite stores, with new shops being added all the time.
There is no registration required. Simply click on the link of any store you want to shop at from the menu on the shopping pages.
After clicking the link you can shop completely as normal.
It costs you absolutely nothing extra. You don't pay anything more for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
2. YOU BUY THINGS
In exchange for sending people to the store's website to make purchases, they pays us commission.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time we raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 15%; sometimes it's a fixed amount.
3. THEY GIVE US MONEY
4. WE USE THE MONEY TO PLANT TREES
We give money to charities which plant trees both in the UK and around the world.
Initially we are giving
money exclusively to
International Tree Foundation works with communities in Africa and the UK to carry out sustainable community forestry projects which protect, regenerate and cultivate trees and forests to conserve habitats rich in biodiversity and to enhance human and environmental well-being.
We give 50% of the commission money to charity and use the other 50% to fund the running costs of the organisation.
As Shop Green becomes more popular our aim is to significantly increase the ratio of money we receive which we donate.
