Whether you’re buying diapers or groceries, school supplies or Mother’s Day gifts, you can (without spending anything extra) give money to the “green” nonprofit of your choice! GoodShop.com is an online shopping mall that donates up to 30% of every purchase at more than 1,400 (including Amazon, Target, Diapers.com, Gap, Staples, and Expedia among others) to your family’s favorite “green’ cause.
In addition, the site lists hundreds of coupons and deals including free shipping offers, percentages off, buy-one-get-one deals, and money back on future orders. For example: get 15% orders at The Children’s Place, save $10 on your first order at Diapers.com, free shipping on orders over $50 at Target, or save $10 at Drugstore.com.
Here’s how it works:
1) Go to www.GoodShop.com
2) Designate your favorite charity
3) Enter the store where you want to shop and get a list of the coupons
4) Shop as you normally would and a percentage of what you spend goes back to your cause
GoodShop is a great way to help families integrate helping the environment into their daily habits and routines (and save money while they’re at it!). It’s a no-brainer!
For more info: Parents can also encourage children to use the search engine GoodSearch.com which donates about a penny per search to their child’s favorite “green” charity (such as Conservation International, the NRDC, Heal the Bay, the Nature Conservancy or one of the 89,000+ others!). Use GoodSearch just as you would use any other search engine, get quality Yahoo! search results, and watch the donations add up!
