The new EcoPerks experience launches today offering simple ways to live a more carbon neutral lifestyle while earning EcoPoints to be used toward valuable rewards. This exciting online platform is a unique blend of cause, commerce, content, community and carbon offset tools tied to the most generous rewards program on the Internet. EcoPerks.com has an unmatched range of products, information and functionality designed to promote carbon neutral living.
Today, there are more than 1.3 billion loyalty program participants in the United States. “EcoPerks.com is different. Earning and redeeming points means helping our planet,” states Donna Boesky Mastropasqua, CEO of EcoPerks. “We’ve created a currency that has the potential to do so many positive things for our members and the environment,” she continued. Mastropasqua, a customer loyalty expert and founder of Perks.com, has developed rewards programs for a diverse list of companies including Citigroup and American Express.
EcoPerks gives members a variety of ways to quickly earn large quantities of rewards by shopping from among more than 500 major retailers, purchasing eco-products and certified carbon offsets, taking surveys, sharing eco-tips or participating in their online community. The company matches rewards from all purchases, directing the cash value toward projects that protect the environment, reduce emissions and support renewable energy solutions.
“As the EcoPerks community grows, we will add more ways to earn and redeem EcoPoints giving members an even greater opportunity to live greener and combat climate change,” says Mastropasqua.
SAVE THE PLANET - GET THE PERKS
For every EcoPoint members earn they can potentially receive a minimum of double rewards – one for the member – the other for the planet. The points for the planet are automatically directed toward a variety of impact projects that re-wild damaged ecosystems and support renewable energy solutions that cut greenhouse gas emissions. “With virtually every click of the mouse, members can be confident they are doing something positive for the planet,” said Mastropasqua.
The rest of the points can be used to offset the members’ own carbon footprint and to redeem in the amazing EcoPerks rewards catalogue. One of the most unique and exciting programs of its kind, the selection of rewards includes cool green products, thrilling eco-travel opportunities, VIP tickets to concerts, sporting events and movie premiers, once-in-a-lifetime celebrity encounters, and other exclusive experiences.
EcoPerks also provides members with an easy way to calculate and offset their carbon footprint. Members earn EcoPoints for filling out simple questionnaires and purchasing carbon offsets directly from a list of projects using points or cash. EcoPerks.com’s offset projects are developed, monitored and verified by award-winning Sterling Planet, one of the world’s most trusted providers of emissions solutions.
EcoPerks.com is also a premiere information resource with the latest eco-news, information and tips for greener living. Members of the Eco-Perks.com community can participate in special features aimed at expanding the eco-conversation. “We want to empower consumers to make better choices,” said Mastropasqua. “There are regular people out there who have simple, workable solutions we all can use to make a real difference.” says Mastropasqua.
