EcoPlum Wraps Up Holiday Offers with E-gift Card Breast Cancer Fund Donations by Marcia Robbins, December 24 2015
NEW YORK, NY, December 24, 2015— Today, EcoPlum, a sustainable media and e-commerce company, announced an e-gift card promotion as part of its “Six Weeks of Sustainably Stylish Savings” and “Step Out in Style and Let Your Conscience be Your Guide” campaigns. These holiday campaigns promote limited offers on a variety of eco friendly fashion and home products from EcoPlum’s online boutique, plus make matching donations to the Breast Cancer Fund
Through December 31, 2015, EcoPlum will match the regular EcoChipz rewards points earned at the rate of one point for every dollar spent and donate the equivalent points value to the Breast Cancer Fund. EcoPlum’s dual 2015 holiday promotions “Six Weeks of Sustainably Stylish Savings” (hashtag #EcoStyle) and “Step Out in Style and Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide” (hashtag #GivingEveryDay) are paired in this e-gift card offer for week six.
EcoPlum encourages shoppers to do more conscious buying for themselves and others and to place greater value on sustainable products that have limited impact on the environment and are healthy, durable, and made under fair trade and fair labor conditions.
Gia Machlin, Founder and CEO, EcoPlum, emphasizes: “EcoPlum’s online boutique sells all kinds of beautiful and sustainable gifts. If you want your loved one to do the selecting, the best sustainable gift to give is our e-gift card, purchased and sent online the same day, with no muss, no fuss, no plastic bags, and no wrapping paper to throw away!”
All six offers during “Six Weeks of Sustainably Stylish Savings” will continue through December 31, 2015, including all the following:
- e-gift card s, in increments from $25 to $500, with EcoPlum matching one-to-one EcoChipz rewards points earned in donations to the Breast Cancer Fund;
- 15% off EcoPlum’s new Cate & Levi line of organic baby clothing and 100% polar fleece stuffed animals made from recycled bottles;
- Additional 10% off marked down eco friendly gift baskets and sets, including fair trade chocolate, organic makeup and skincare, and soy candles;
- $10 off any purchase over $50 in the EcoPlum online boutique, including eco friendly clothing, fair trade jewelry, accessories, handbags, skincare and cosmetics, and home items;
- 10% off all candle holders, vases, and decorative planters made from reclaimed wood and glass;
- 10% off all Analog Watches, gender-neutral, earth friendly wooden time-pieces with a unique sculptural design, 80% biodegradable and made from lumber offcuts.
EcoPlum selected the Breast Cancer Fund for its giveback to support its efforts on exposing environmental causes of breast cancer. Gia describes it this way: “The Breast Cancer Fund created the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a collaboration EcoPlum supports, to educate consumers about toxic chemicals in everyday skincare and makeup products, to pressure companies to remove known toxins, and to advocate for increased regulation and better labeling.”
