Choices Make Changes
BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) February 27, 2018
There IS shopping confusion among consumers. With nearly 3.8 million retail establishments in the United States and about 1.3 million e-commerce sites in North America alone, shoppers are lost. Bombarded by thousands of products from swarms of manufacturers, people are at a point where just buying a simple pair of headphones or some new kitchen utensils online can cause ‘Shopper Fatigue.’ And this confusion is only going to increase moving forward, especially in the ecommerce realm where total online sales in 2017 rose nearly 15% up to over $452 billion.
Ryan Lewis, serial entrepreneur and innovator, researched this confusion and took it upon himself to create the answer: EarthHero. EarthHero is a new online marketplace that changes how people shop online by offering a lineup of carefully selected products that are affordably priced, durably constructed, and most importantly: sustainably produced. EarthHero combines the needs of consumers with the needs of Mother Nature to provide quality products that allow people to feel good about their purchases every time they shop.
Lewis and his team tirelessly research brands from across a huge variety of categories, from innovative household goods to clothing to audio electronics to beauty products. Shoppers won’t see 30 different brands of deodorant here – instead they’ll find a handful of high-quality, responsibly-produced options, cutting the confusion of shopping down to the basics. Additionally, EarthHero’s partnerships with each of these brands ensure that consumers receive the lowest price guaranteed on each product.
At EarthHero, Choices Make Changes™. Lewis and his team choose products for EarthHero by looking for trusted companies – companies that utilize sustainable materials, manufacturing processes, and business practices to create products that fulfill shoppers’ everyday needs and keep Mother Nature in mind. When Lewis selects a product for the EarthHero marketplace, he and his team carefully research the brand based with their proprietary methodology to guarantee each company aligns with EarthHero’s key areas of focus. They then display these features on each product page through simple visual icons, ensuring consumers know exactly what they’re buying and how their buying has impact.
EarthHero prioritizes sustainability and charitability in all aspects of their operations. They are a member of 1% For The Planet, meaning they donate 1% of their sales annually towards sustainability initiatives that give back to the planet, and they are currently in the application process of becoming a B-certified corporation. Unfortunately, shipping product requires carbon emissions, so EarthHero has partnered with Carbonfund.org to offset all emissions caused from transporting their products, as well as from day-to-day operations, by supporting reforestation projects in the United States. In 2017 alone, EarthHero offset the equivalent roughly 34 acres of forest, making EarthHero a carbon-neutral company that helps local ecosystems across the US.
Ryan Lewis rewards the EarthHero community for sustainable shopping and offers a unique EarthHero Rewards system where each person receives points for every purchase, as well as for product reviews and social media shares. Twice a year, each person’s points are gathered, and the EarthHero shopper will receive discounts and coupon rewards based on how many points they’ve accumulated, making the shopping experience at EarthHero that much more gratifying.
Shopping doesn’t need to be confusing, nor does helping Mother Nature – one just needs to know where to look to get the best products at the most affordable prices, and EarthHero is that place. EarthHero makes it easy to get products that satisfy the desire for savings without sacrificing the desire for quality and purpose. Whether one is an environmental steward or someone that doesn’t know much about environmental sustainability, EarthHero invites everyone to shop consciously and become an EarthHero.
