San Francisco, CA, June 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Ecobunga!, launched today at http://www.ecobunga.com, helps consumers find bargains and giveaways on eco-friendly products and services. The website lists hundreds of deals, from sweepstakes for hybrid cars to coupons for organic foods.
Ecobunga! seeks to address consumers’ top concern about going green: cost. According to the 2007 GfK Roper Green Gauge® Study, about 40% of Americans say they’d pay for a product that is perceived as being better for the environment. But at the same time, 74% of those surveyed say eco-friendly products are too expensive. “Basic laws of supply and demand should eventually bring down the price of eco-friendly products and services,” notes Karen Schiff, co-founder of Ecobunga! “In the meantime, we want to help shoppers chip away at the cost of going green by connecting them to deals large and small.”
At Ecobunga! shoppers can find discounts, free shipping, contests, sweepstakes, and more on all sorts of green products and services. Eco-conscious moms might be interested in Under the Nile’s sale on organic cotton baby clothes, homeowners looking for lower electric bills might want to enter GE’s Energy Smart Sweepstakes, and young and old alike might enjoy the coupons on Stonyfield Farm’s organic frozen yogurt.
Consumers are not the only ones to benefit from Ecobunga! Businesses with earth-friendly offerings can add their deals to the site for free. “We not only want to help shoppers locate green deals, we also want to help green companies locate shoppers,” says Schiff, who explains that before being published to the website each deal is reviewed using criteria recommended by respected organizations, such as Co-op America, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Consumer Reports. “It’s not a perfect science,” Schiff adds, “but we do our very best to ensure shoppers get a genuine green deal.”
Through its comprehensive online directory of green giveaways and deals, Ecobunga! LLC connects eco-conscious consumers and companies, providing a way for shoppers to save money and businesses to promote their green products and services.
