more eco earn loyalty points for eco friendly productsThe other week, Mr Green said to me ‘Wouldn’t it be great if some company offered a kind of ‘loyalty points scheme’ where the rewards were something to do with the environment rather than ones that encourage us to buy more plastic waste like dvds and electronic goods?’

And, as if by magic, Richard from MoreEco contacted us that very week. He’d come across MyZeroWaste after reading about us on EcoStreet and wanted to see if we could somehow work together.

Richard, in charge of marketing and online community, introduced me to Mark Philip-Sorenson, who is the brains behind MoreEco – an online loyalty card scheme that rewards you with green goods.

Being a member of MoreEco couldn’t be easier.

You shop online with the MoreEco retailers and service providers, earn moreeco points with every purchase, then Redeem your moreeco points for shopping vouchers or eco products. You can also select to purchase carbon credits or donate your points to protect our forests.

Some of the online retailers include Abel and Cole, one of my favourites – Adili, Green and Black (yum!) and our friends, Natural Collection.

Each retailer awards certain loyalty points such as points for every £1 Spent or a ‘lump sum’ of credits such as 3500 points if you take out insurance with the Green Company or 1,750 Points if you sign up with Good Energy.

There are a great list of rewards that you can redeem your loyalty points for such as gift vouchers for Nigels Eco store, eco balls, subscriptions to ‘green’ magazines, energy monitors and eco kettles.

You don’t pay any more than you would to shop direct with these retailers, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

In addition to this, Moreeco offset 1Kg of 10 moreeco points earned spent via the moreeco website.more eco earn points while you shop green

It sounds an amazing site and we wish Richard all the best with his venture.

But you know, there’s more………

Richard has donated us some points to share with our lovely readers during our September plegde and win zero waste week.

Every time you mention our “pledge and win competition” on another site with a link to MyZeroWaste.com AND a link to the Moreeco home page you can earn yourself 200 moreeco points.

In addition, every time you comment anywhere on our site during our September pledge and win week (minimum of 50 words) you can earn 50 points. (each person can qualify for 3 comments a day, or 150 points).

This means, if you comment 3 times a day on our site every day during our pledge and win zero waste week AND put a link to our site and the MoreEco site on another site then you could earn yourself 1150 points. You only need 1750 points to earn yourself a £10 Nigel’s Eco Store Gift Voucher.

We have several thousands points to give away, but, as one well known shop is known to say, when they’re gone, they’re gone.

So let us know, with appropriate links where you are talking about MyZeroWaste and MoreEco so that we can award you with your points and make sure you come back during the first week in September to comment on our site!

What do points make …

Prizes!

    MoreEco has changed

    After thinking long and hard during the current economic climate, the team MoreEco decided they needed to give its members more incentive to shop, whilst at the same time helping you to save money on your shopping.

    Therefore they scrapped the ’shopping for points’ system replacing it with the much more favourable ‘cash back’.

    It’s simple… for every purchase you make, you earn cash back!
