partner-greatergooddotorg

What they say:

The GreaterGood network of websites started with one simple idea: take one action everyone does every day – a click on a website – and turn it into a force for good. GreaterGood.org partners with and funds leading nonprofit organizations around the world in order to alleviate poverty and hunger, promote peace, address cancer and other widespread health problems, foster literacy and provide education, preserve vital habitats in peril, and provide protection and care to vulnerable animals.

      • Support a leading cause while you shop. For each item purchased, 3% to 50% of the item’s retail price will be kept aside to be granted to charity partners
      • Low, low prices on fashion, jewelry, accessories, home decor, gift ideas, fair trade items, and more…
      • Check out the Made with Love Measuring Spoons! [OK, so after finding them, I bought them too!]

What they say:

Vegan Cuts is run by a vegan couple, John and Jill, who really want to see more people shopping with vegan ethics. A commitment to buying vegan food is a great start, but you can also make a positive difference by choosing vegan options when purchasing clothing, shoes, accessories, body care products and everyday household items. This is why Vegan Cuts features a range of vegan products and encourages members to shop vegan by promoting opportunities to save money while eschewing animal cruelty.

What you’ll find:

I must say that surfing these sites for the purpose of this post was mighty dangerous! At least I know that I got a bargain every time I succumbed to temptation 🙂

Green Coupons and Deals

What they say:

At Green Coupons and Deals, we use the term “green” to describe merchants, products and services that have less of a negative impact on the environment, promote environmental and social awareness and are less harmful to human health than conventional equivalents.

What you’ll find:

      • Instant redeemable coupons and deals for stores representing the many shades of green (eco-friendly, sustainable, certified organic, environmentally conscious, carbon neutral, cruelty free, fair trade… and more!)
      • A community of people supporting green lifestyles and businesses
