Online PR News – 23-September-2011 – – Minneapolis, MN - EcoBonus, the rewards program for people who buy earth-friendly products, proudly announced that ECOlunchboxes has become a Reward Partner. ECOlunchboxes are made of high-quality dishwasher-safe stainless steel and are 100% plastic-free, waste-free, lead-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, and vinyl-free.
An average U.S. family spends about $400 extra on disposable lunchware and creates about 4,320 pieces of trash unnecessarily, according to the results of a Lunchbox Waste Study* completed by ECOlunchboxes. Moms, dads, and business brown-baggers alike can save hundreds of dollars a year by buying just a few pieces of long-lasting, zero-waste alternatives from ECOlunchboxes. And now, when EcoBonus launches on November 1, they’ll also be able to earn reward points for purchasing them.
“ECOlunchboxes is proof that people can make a positive difference just by changing the way they pack their lunch,” said Tiger Beaudoin, founder of EcoBonus. “From the renewable materials used to make the lunchboxes, to the ancient traditions kept alive by the artisans who make the napkins, ECOlunchboxes is transforming the humble lunch into a vehicle for living sustainably.”
“Going green with EcoBonus is going to be a lot of fun for eco-friendly consumers, and we’re delighted ECOlunchboxes is among the first companies to participate in this eco-friendly incentive program,” said Sandra Ann Harris, the California eco-mom who founded ECOlunchboxes. “We’re all familiar with earning rewards for miles on our credit cards, but now we can reward ourselves for going green. The EcoBonus program is a great way to say goodbye to ‘green guilt’ and start having fun racking up the points by buying eco-friendly products like ECOlunchboxes.”
The icing on the cake? ECOlunchboxes will also be featured in the EcoBonus reward catalog. That means that EcoBonus members can “buy” ECOlunchboxes with their points. It’s more than a win-win. It’s a save-save.
EcoBonus is the first industry-wide initiative to encourage mainstream consumers to choose eco-conscious, natural, or socially responsible products. It provides a searchable database of 75,000 qualifying products, offers coupons and samples tailored to individual preferences, and rewards sustainable purchases with points. Participation is open to individuals, businesses, and groups—and pooling of points by schools and nonprofit organizations toward bigger rewards is encouraged. The program launches on November 1, 2011. Interested manufacturers should call (612) 276-2725. Consumers can follow EcoBonus on Facebook and Twitter @ecobonus.
