Earth Day is April 22nd and here is an easy way your readers can give back to the environment! They can raise money for environmental causes each time they search the internet and shop online!
Thousands of environmental protection organizations have partnered with the search engine GoodSearch.com and shopping mall, GoodShop.com, to enable their supporters to generate donations just by doing simple everyday actions!
GoodSearch is a Yahoo-powered search engine that donates 50% of its revenue to the users’ favorite environmental cause. Use it exactly as you would any other search engine and and it doesn’t cost the users a thing!
Similarly, GoodShop.com is an online shopping mall of over 2,000 well-known retailers including Amazon, Target, Macy’s, Buy.com, Apple and Petco among others. The shopping experience and the prices are the same as going to the retailer directly, but by going through GoodShop, up to 30% of the purchase price is donated to the user’s favorite cause. In addition, GoodShop provides the user with great deals and coupons so not only are they helping a cause, but they’re saving money while doing so! Check out our “Organic and Green” category for environment-friendly companies!
There are currently nearly 100,000 nonprofits earning money from GoodSearch and GoodShop including The Nature Conservancy, Conservation International, the NRDC, and Heal the Bay among others.
